Cambridge Double Star Atlas
This magnificent atlas contains the most attractive and interesting double and multiple stars for viewing with binoculars and telescopes. It is a must-have for stargazers who want to explore these fascinating objects. The first modern star atlas devoted to double and multiple stars, it plots over 2,000 selected pairs of stars, each labeled with discoverer, catalog, and/or observatory designations. A superb introduction to this important class of celestial objects, it is spiral bound and printed in red-light friendly colors, making it ideal for use in the field. Written by experienced observer James Mullaney, and beautifully illustrated by renowned celestial cartographer Wil Tirion, it provides an easy-to-use "celestial roadmap" to locate and identify double and multiple stars. Other deep-sky objects such as star clusters, nebulae, and galaxies are also included, and are color-coded for easy recognition and identification, making this an all-purpose observing reference.

Celestial Atlas Menor

Celestial Atlas Menor is a reference and observing guide for those wanting to enjoy the exploration of the heavens with their eyes, binoculars or a 6 to 8-inch diameter telescope. It is for both beginners and more experienced observers. The magnitude limit of the charted stars is about +5.5 which is the limit of the naked eye, but the magnitude limit for celestial objects (like nebulae and galaxies) is about +11.5, which is the limit for a 6-inch to 8-inch diameter telescope, that is, popular-size scopes under reasonably dark skies. Throughout its 128 pages, beginners will find explanations of terms and concepts, as well as help with terms in the expanded glossary.
