Product Description

Product Description

Celestron Sky Maps are the ideal teaching guide for learning the night sky. Even if you already know your way around the major constellations, these maps can help you locate all kinds of fascinating objects. The front cover has a specially designed luminous planisphere that rotates to simulate the seasonal progression of celestial objects through the sky. When the planisphere is preexposed to light, star positions glow brightly against a dark background, mimicking actual constellations. More than 1,000 stars and deep-sky objects are listed and charted. The illustrated reference section provides basic information and the visual characteristics of various types of stars, nebulae, and galaxies. The maps measure 13.75 by 11.5 inches and are printed on a heavyweight, moisture resistant card stock. The pages have a special comb binding so they can lay flat or be folded over.

I purchased this item two weeks ago. My thought was that it seemed like a reasonably priced, perfect addition to the "tools" necessary for a budding amateur backyard astronomy hobby (its advertised contents, construction, and "glow-in-the-dark" planisphere). After closely examining the item for the past ten days, I'm forced to conclude that I was in error, and that you really do get what you pay for. As Celestron is one of the most reputable names in astronomy, I must confess that I assumed that quality would follow in all products that bear their name. I have found that this does not hold true in the case of these sky maps. The major problem with the package is that it is rife with misspellings, letter transpositions, apparent omitted words, and just plain (what we used to call in the old days) "typographical errors." Additionally, when I compare some of the technical information on the maps (i.e., star magnitudes, astronomical distances, etc.)and accompanying descriptions with other authoritative astronomy sources I have in my possession, I also find numerous apparent errors and discrepances. When using a product like this, it is essential that one be able to trust the data and information it contains. Since I'm not able to do this, I must rate this item with one star. When I purchased the item, it was marked down by twenty percent. I note that in less that two weeks since my purchase, the price has been further reduced by another thirteen percent. In this case, don't be fooled (as I was) by an attractive price. AVOID THIS PRODUCT. (I don't have a substitute to recommend at this time.)

This star chart is printed on glossy, heavy card stock. I purchased this to replace the exact one I've had for about 25 years. The binding was finally giving up. My old one has been left in the dew saturated grass overnight and had frost on it. It is still easily usable, just that the pages are coming apart. I highly recommend this chart for beginners and veteran astronomers alike who want to learn the constellations or use the "star hop" method to locate the numerous galaxies, open and globular star clusters, double stars, and nebulae described within.

It's perfect for me - charts list all the stars and objects, charts are large enough so it's easy to see everything, descriptions list named stars and interesting objects for each constellation. Everything is clear, good sturdy paper and it even has movable star finder. Large format, a lot of useful information!

I haven't been able to get the star wheel to "glow in the dark" yet. The star wheel is good though.

This thing gives you tons of info about the stars, star clusters, types of nebula, galaxies and much more. I just wish it would provide more info about the planets.

I was a little surprised by the size of this book. Check to make sure it fits in your carry case.

The turn-wheel works good, it's on sturdy paper, good maps, but the spiral binding isn't great.

I bought this book for my husband along with a high powered telescope for our anniversary and needless to say he has been in love with the sky every since. He can find everything he is looking for with out any problems.
