'Using data from both the Tycho and Hipparcos Catalogues, 81, 312 stars down to magnitude 8.5 are now plotted on 26 charts. This is nearly double the number of the previous version … The Deluxe Version is spiral-bound and unlaminated. The Field and Desk Versions are available in less expensive unlaminated and unbound format, i.e. loose sheets, or more expensive laminated and spiralbound format … Sky Atlas 2000.0 is an excellent atlas at a very reasonable price, and is suitable for both beginners and experienced observers.' Gordon Nason, Astronomy and Space

You need a star map - look no further than Sky Atlas 2000.0 - it has the lot!
This type of atlas is really for use on a desk for planning or checking rather than ouside at the eyepiece - it's just too big and paper does not cope with dew for long. I use laminated A4 maps of similar scale outside having planned from a map inside. The index charts could be better presented possibly as a loose sheet as well if like me you work from the constellations and star hop rather than use co ordinates. That's really my only gripe (and with Atlas Coeli - but I'm used to that by now!)
The overlay sheet stores quite neatly inside the atlas being thinner than the version supplied with Coeli that one needs a pocket making or it gets lost which this one shouldn't.
If you want to use it outside get the laminated version, but if you like looking over maps this is a nice set for your desk. If it's only for outside use remember you won't see the colours with a red light and it needs a desk, holding down in the wind and keeping dry.
