Comprehensive Catalog to Volumes 1 and 2
on 30 May 2010 - Published on Amazon.com
This volume is an appendix to Volume 1 (Northern Hemisphere to -6) and Volume 2 (Southern Hemisphere to +6). It's basically a huge printout of summary data for each and every deep sky object mapped in the previous two volumes. Size, shape, magnitude, seperation (for doubles), etc. Basically everything you need to determine if an object is a feasible target and to confirm your sighting once you've found it. This book is big and heavy, so don't plan on field use unless you have a portable desk or table to work from.

Necessary Only for Completeness Sake
on 26 September 2014 - Published on Amazon.com
Volume 3 of Uranometria can be a bit of a let down from volumes 1 and 2. This is a volume of text errata containing a wealth of information about the positions of deep sky objects shown in the first two volumes. For most backyard astronomers (even with fairly large telescopes) much of this volume will be well beyond what you will likely find necessary. Most of us are happy finding most of the Messier and Caldwell objects. But, occasionally I run into something interesting and this book has occasionally helped me figure out what I was looking at. Nice to have if you have the money, but hardly essential.

A fitting companion to Tirion's Atlas
on 21 December 2014 - Published on Amazon.com
This Deep Sky Field Guide serves as a complement to Tirion's Uranometria 2000.0 in two volumes. Granted, you can have Tirion without Cragin, but you cannot have Cragin without Tirion. The DSFG is designed to match Uranometria 2000.0 page for page.
