From the Publisher
The Night Sky comes in two sizes: Large (8 inch diameter) and Small (5 inch diameter). The large size is best for learning the constellations. The small size is best as a pocket reference to tell you what constellations are up if you are already reasonably familiar with the constellations. In each size the charts are available for different latitude zones.
To find the correct size and latitude zone, use the following ISBN numbers in your Amazon.com search:

a car's glove box for use at a rest stop in a long night-time commute.
The one drawback of this model is that it does not lend itself to easy use in twilight in the winter months, because only the hours of darkness are explicitly labeled -- 7pm, 8pm, . . . , 4am, 5am.
One has to mentally note where 5pm and 6pm are for evening twilight, and where 6am and 7am are for morning twilight.
