There are two niggles. One is that the pages are made from decent paper but could have been more solid, especially considering the spiral binding (I fear that some pages may make a bid for freedom after some Scottish windy nights). Second, the galaxies are printed in red and will therefore be difficult to identify out in the field using red light.
Stars down to maginitude 7.6 are displayed on 80 main charts. The pages are in colour with significant objects easy to find. Arrows indicate the page number of the next page to check on the sky to the north/east/south/west which makes navigating across the sky simple. I am very pleased with this atlas and I am certain it will help improve my knowledge of the constellations. It is not as detailed as some of the more complex atlases but it is more than adequate for most casual users.
Just read Jerry Oltion's column in the May 2018 edition of Sky & Telescope where he mentions owning three copies which made me think...good idea, I'll buy the smaller true pocket edition for field use as well.
I am only giving this 2 stars.
If I had the hardback it would be 5 stars.
Why o why do the kindle editions come out so poorly?
The star charts are hard to read and you cannot expand (at least not on my Samsung tablet) to read them.
So do not download the kindle edition until they make some changes to make it readable.
This is looking to be a great aid to DSO hunting. Lots of spiral-bound pages, each a bit bigger than A5, and packed with detail of a patch of sky, showing stars, constellations, and DSOs with handy colour-coding. Nebulae for example are well outlined, although I don't expect to see their full extents!
Not only that, but there is a comprehensive index, divided by type of object, then sub-divided by catalogue (M, C, IC, NGC, etc.).
Really looking forward to using this atlas, and I too would now recommend it to anyone who has not yet acquired one.
When I found out about this jumbo edition,I quickly decided to buy it as a 'Library copy.
The layout of the charts seems easier to use, to me at least,than some other Star Atlas that are currently avaiable.
