Product details

Product Description

It is the first-ever star chart that folds up like a road map! DeepMap 600 shows the positions of the 600 finest celestial objects visible from the Northern Hemisphere. All are plotted on a giant 33" x 21" full-color star chart by world-renowned star-mapper Wil Tirion. DeepMap 600 is designed for easy location of hundreds of deep-sky objects with telescopes and binoculars. Color-coded symbols identify more than 500 galaxies, nebulas, and star clusters - including all 109 Messier objects - as well as some 100 of the most interesting double and variable stars. No other single star chart includes so many objects! What makes DeepMap 600 really indispensable is that it folds up accordion style to a thin, pocket-size 4-3/4" x 10-1/2-just like a road map! No longer must you fumble with bulky books, star atlases, and observing references to find interesting objects to view.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Superb Instrument to Enhance Star Gazing! 12 Jun. 2013
By William F. McInerny - Published on Amazon.com

I have two excellent planispheres and two outstanding star atlases, the Orion DeepMap 600 is a unique and most welcome addition to these. Part of its singularity resides in its panoramic view of the night sky. Its impressive size of 21 x 33" lays out constellations and Messier objects in a way not possible with other star charts. Visually the DeepMap is stunning with all significant stars and objects color coded against the flowing background of the Milky Way. The details here are enormous. Moreover, the information sections included are very clear, concise, and useful: There are descriptions of all Messier objects, directions for using the map, the Greek alphabet for star names, and observing tips
-- all in one source. So convenient. The weather proof plastic material it's made of makes this ideal for outdoor use as well as its easy folding construction. There are even directions for how to care for it after nighttime use. I highly recommend this item. I have two mild cautions to offer. First, the detailed nature of its presentation might be, and I stress might be, a little overwhelming for beginners. Second, and related to the former, I find the constellation outlines and the Greek lettering of stars difficult to see; however, this may be due to my eyesight. I am so delighted to have the Orion DeepMap 600 in my collection.
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product 8 Feb. 2013

This is an excellent product and I love it. It is not a paper but a vinyl kind of material for long life and durability. This chart shows enough night sky objects for binocular / small size telescope. It is folded just like a road map and can go into your pocket very easily.

I paid $19.94 with shipping so price is reasonable.

I can recommend it to anyone.
