Book Description

From the Author

Comment on the THIRD edition of the Cambridge Star Atlas
The third edition of the Cambridge Star Atlas is a vast improvement compared to the second edition. The 20 main star charts have completely been redrawn, using computer techniques and the maps contain more deepsky objects. Consequently there are completely new tables to accompany the maps.
