If you are an experienced astrophotographer who has imaged most of the obvious stuff, get this atlas right away! It will refresh your enthusiasm and provide years of inspiration.
If you are new to astrophotography, get this atlas right away! It will reduce your frustration by steering you to the most satisfying objects to tackle early in your imaging career.
At first glance I was little disappointed in the contents. Has many charts which I already have. But after a better examination, I was pleased with everything.
The main reason for buying this Atlas was to have a book that shows me (and describes) the objects to photograph according to their size, brightness AND recommendation.
The author covers this perfectly. The lists are extensive and I really value the comments he makes on the objects regarding their content and whether or not it is worth imaging.
The maps showing the objects is another plus as it has a visual representation on the relative size and brightness. Makes it easy to determine whether or not to image.

So four stars for content but I am knocking one star off because, at £20, it should be hardback or spiral bound.
I thought it wouod have a easy format to read and decipher, not the case.
It shows maps of sky with tiny signs meaning a dso or the other and then declinations or coordinates.
Adds zero value to knowing what's up and when.
In short if you know how to ready probably dont need the book altogether as you would be a professional astronomer.
