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.

Make sure you purchase the proper map based on your latitude...
The only thing I forgot to do was purchase a red light for viewing the chart at night, but I simply converted a flashlight with some translucent red plastic I had in the house.
I am using my planisphere with the freeware planetarium program: Stellarium available for download from [...] and now can supplement my understanding of the map, it's use, and therefore my outside viewing experience.
The construction and materials of the map are excellent. I'm very glad I purchased this product... a great value!
