Sky maps book

Description

Celestron Sky Maps are the ideal teaching companion for the Celestron telescope series. The front cover of this book of constellations features a rotating planisphere that tracks the seasonal paths of the stars and other celestial objects. After pre-exposure to light, the planisphere constellations glow against their background, just like the night sky!


The Celestron Sky Maps book features an illustrated reference section that catalogues over 1,000 stars and other objects of the night sky. Printed on heavyweight, moisture-resistant card stock, the pages of this book can be laid flat or folded over for easy viewing. This is a great "road map" to the night skies, and an excellent navigational tool for learning constellations.


Celestron Sky Maps are the ideal teaching guide for learning the night sky. You wouldn’t set off on a road trip without a road map, and you don’t 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.


The 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.


More 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.


CHOKING HAZARD - small parts may pose a risk to children under 6 yrs.

Great item for amateurs Informative and a great reference tool for future dates. I now know when the planets are going to be in what constellation every month from now until 2019!! Great purchase, there is so much more informative knowledge in this book as well. I highly suggest this one.

This book, while does have decent charts is made cheap. Do not waste your money on it. Makes me wonder, if they can't even make a book that doesn't fall apart, why would you spend thousands on one of their telescopes.

        The book is lovely but it is very advanced . More for an adult than child. My grandson did enjoy spinning the wheel to see where the stars were for each month...

                  Customer Q & A

                  Q1: Does the "Celestron Sky Maps" also include maps, etc in the southern hemisphere skies?

                  A: I am sorry but no, you should be able to get skymaps though with the southern hemisphere at almost any bookstore though.
