5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Atlas, 15 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Cambridge Photographic Star Atlas (Hardcover)
I bought this book on impulse as I was curious to see what it was like. I do not do much astronomical observing myself because of local light pollution, but I do have a few of the simpler star atlases.

What I like about this atlas is the fact that each area of the sky has a double page devoted to it, one page being a photograph of the night sky and the other page being a "negative" version of the same area with black stars on a white background, such as you would find in a star atlas, with coordinates and constellation outlines as well.

I think this book could be used in conjunction with a conventional star atlas to give the user a general idea of what the night sky actually looks like, which is something you cannot get from a typical star atlas.

I personally like the book as it is like having a dark night sky at your fingertips. I am not sure the book would be a lot of use as a primary star atlas as it does not give a great deal of information on the "atlas" pages, but as a photographic record of the whole sky and a addition to a conventional star atlas it is very good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 26 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Cambridge Photographic Star Atlas (Hardcover)
If you are an astrophotographer taking pictures with a good mount and using camera lenses this is a far easier atlas to use than a purely graphical one. It highlights the areas where you ae likely to see something interesting with your telescope as well. Very helpful.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cambridge Photographic Star Atlas, 26 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Cambridge Photographic Star Atlas (Hardcover)
This is a good atlas which provides clear detail information about constellations although asterisms tend to be split over two pages. It would have been nice if they had included the star names.
