Celestron Sky Maps is a comprehensive guide for learning the night sky. You wouldnt set off on a road trip without a road map, and you dont need to try to navigate the night sky without a map either. Even if you already know your way around the major constellations, these maps can help you locate all kinds of fascinating objects. Not only is this an excellent guide but also makes an ideal gift for anyone interested in astronomy.
Luminous PlanisphereThe 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 pre-exposed to light, star positions glow brightly against a dark background, mimicking actual constellations. Practical designMore than a thousand 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 13¼" x 11¼" 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. Features Glow-in-the-dark planisphere tells you which constellations are up for any date or time, and at a moments notice! Seasonal star charts display the locations of the best deep-sky objects for summer, winter, spring, and autumn Heavy card stock with a protective overcoat holds up to years of use Plastic spiral binding lets star charts lay flat For use in the Northern Hemisphere only
