The Bright Star Atlas

For those of you who always have a pair of binoculars handy, all you may find missing is the proper "road maps" to the stars. For beginning astronomers, detailed charts may contain more information than you need for a small telescope... and be confusing as well. No more!

Wil Tirion's Bright Star Atlas 2000.0 is a map atlas of the night sky based upon the Yale Bright Star Catalog, 4th Edition. These are the stars most of us can see without aid! Opposite each full page map, profession astronomer Brian Skiff of the Lowell Observatory has prepared a tabular listing of interesting objects visible in binoculars or small telescopes. With the Bright Star Atlas and a small telescope or binoculars, you'll discover galaxies, open clusters, diffuse nebulae, bright nebulae, planetary nebulae, double stars, and variable stars!

The Bright Star Atlas also includes a set of seasonal star maps to help orient the user to the night sky throughout practically the entire populated world. Objects in Skiff's catalog are also listed in cross referenced tables. The Tirion Bright Star Atlas is an Ideal companion atlas to the larger Sky Atlas 2000.0 or Uranometria 2000.0 and a great classroom, astronomy club or outreach tool!
