At first glance I was little disappointed in the contents. Has many charts which I already have. But after a better examination, I was pleased with everything.
The main reason for buying this Atlas was to have a book that shows me (and describes) the objects to photograph according to their size, brightness AND recommendation.
The author covers this perfectly. The lists are extensive and I really value the comments he makes on the objects regarding their content and whether or not it is worth imaging.
The maps showing the objects is another plus as it has a visual representation on the relative size and brightness. Makes it easy to determine whether or not to image.
I don't have a lot of experience with star atlases in general, so can't comment more broadly on hardcore technical merits of this book vs other atlas options. But for it's intended purpose (which was my purpose in purchasing this book), this is a very useful book and nicely presented and printed. I take off 1/2 a star for not being spiral bound and it would have been nice to see some true wide-field photographic plates of some target-rich areas included as well - hopefully in a future edition of this very good book.
