Binocular Highlights is a tour of 96 different celestial sights ? from softly glowing clouds of gas and dust to unusual stars, clumps of stars, and vast star cities (galaxies) ? all visible in binoculars. Each object is plotted on a detailed, easy-to-use star map, and most of these sights can be found even in a light-polluted sky.
Modeled after our popular Messier Card, this handy observing aid charts the location of all 109 Caldwell objects on one side and tabulates the positions (J2000.0), sizes, and apparent magnitudes of the objects on the other. A laminated finish protects it against moisture and wear.
The second in the Deep-Sky Companions series, this book is the ultimate road map to Patrick Moore's catalog of 109 star clusters, nebulae, and galaxies that didn't make it onto the Messier list.
This annotated catalog, compiled by one of today's most experienced double-star observers, is as user friendly as it is comprehensive! More than 2,100 of the sky's most alluring double and multiple stars are listed with coordinates, magnitudes, colors, and informative commentaries. Make it an essential part of your astronomy library.
The only Moon reference you'll ever need at the telescope! Using maps drawn by renowned lunar cartographer Antonín Rükl, you'll be able to find and identify craters, lava flows, mountains and more.
We wanted a clear and detailed atlas, easy to consult at the telescope. So, starting with our famous Pocket Sky Atlas, we magnified its 80 charts and added six additional close-up fields, including "Steam from the Teapot" and "The Scorpion's Tail".
This quick-reference sky chart shows the location of all the Messier objects on the front and tabulates their coordinates, sizes, and visual magnitudes on the back.
This mirror-image Moon map is perfect for the image-reversed views seen through refractor or catadioptric telescopes. Using maps drawn by renowned lunar cartographer Antonín Rükl, you'll be able to find and identify more than 1,000 features, including craters, lava flows, mountains and more.
Specially designed for use with image-reversing optics, such as refractor or catadioptric telescopes, this map will help you find and identify more than 300 features including craters, maria ("seas" of once-molten lava), and mountain ranges, along with the six Apollo landing sites.
This beautiful, laminated map unfolds to a full 17 inches wide to display the Moon's nearside in glorious detail. While previous versions of our Moon map were illustrated with artistic renderings, this updated version is based on actual images of the Moon's surface.
Written by a well-known and experienced amateur astronomer, this is a practical primer for all aspiring observers of the planets and other Solar System objects. Whether you are a beginner or more advanced astronomer, you will find all you need in this book to help develop your knowledge and skills and move on to the next level of observing.
Here's the perfect how-to book for recreational stargazers. It's loaded with practical advice to help new observers spend more time exploring the night sky and less time fumbling with equipment or wondering how, when, and what to observe.
Nieuw van Sky and Telescope is de Pocket Sky Atlas. Dit handige boekje bevat maar liefst tachtig sterrenkaarten, met ongeveer 30 000 sterren. Ook belangrijke dubbelsterren en deep sky objecten zijn op te zoeken in deze atlas.
Deze prachtige hemelglobe, in de bekende Sky & Telescope stijl, beschikt over maar liefst 2900 sterren (tot magnitude 5.5) waaronder ook heel wat dubbelsterren. Zo'n 300 tal sterren worden met naam weergegeven en er zijn meer dan 550 Bayer aanduidingen.
Deze maan globe van 30 cm is gebaseerd op de werkelijke beelden van camera's op Lunar Reconnaissance NASA Orbiter (LRO) gehouden onder bijna consistente ideale lichtomstandigheden - 15.000 werkelijke beelden om precies te zijn. Met andere woorden, onze globe is de eerste die de Maan laat zien zoals ze werkelijk is.
The innermost planet of our solar system remained an enigma until very recently. Mercury orbits the Sun in just 88 days, never spending more than a week or two in view after sunset or before sunrise, and the planet's proximity to the Sun challenged telescopic observers for centuries.
You've seen the pictures from the New Horizons spacecraft -- now hold Pluto in your hand! Our exclusive 6-inch (15 cm) globe combines a colorful NASA-authorized base map with informal names for 60 craters and other features on Pluto's surface.
