Product description

Review

'An easy to use book, clear, from an authoritative expert, not to be missed. Perhaps the ideal reference for all beginner or proficient observer in both amateur and professional capacity.' Ciel et Terre

'… ideal for both beginning astronomers and more experienced observers worldwide. … This new edition features a clearer map of the Moon's surface, showing craters and features; a second Moon map, mirror-reversed for users of telescopes with star diagonals; enhanced index charts showing the constellations more clearly; and a new data table listing starts hosting planetary systems. It is now spiral bound, making it ideal for use at the telescope.' Spaceflight

'The fourth edition of The Cambridge Star Atlas continues in the tradition of its predecessors in that the star charts are well drawn and clearly labelled. However this new edition also includes some new features not seen in previous editions. Including, a number of large scale charts showing the distribution of the Messier as well as a key to the main charts.' Astronomy Now

'The real beauty of this book is that the format for the main chart pages is so user friendly! First, the charts tend to cover fairly large sections of sky, and they tend to present ONLY targets that are what I would call 'excellent' targets. By this I mean that these charts tend to focus on the brighter targets in the sky. To me, the BEST part is that on the page across from each chart is a set of tables [that] identify the best Variables, Doubles, Open Clusters, Planetary Nebulae, Nebulae, and Galaxies that appear on the chart! It is a wonderful observing companion for just about any level of observer.' Ed Moreno, AstroMart.com

'… should prove popular with a wide readership.' The Observatory

Book Description

This classic star atlas is ideal for both beginning astronomers and more experienced observers worldwide. As well as showing the stars, clusters and galaxies visible with binoculars or a small telescope, this fourth edition contains a new Moon map and enhanced charts.
