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.

-- 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.
I paid $19.94 with shipping so price is reasonable.
I can recommend it to anyone.
second, easy for a first timer to us
third, would recommend to everyone
