Product Description

Celestron Sky Map


 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 13.25" x 11.25" 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.

Not sure why, but I did not expect such a high quality product. It is almost too big at 13-3/4 tall and 11-3/8 wide. All 22 page plus the planisphere on the cover are laminated and should last a long time if not abused. Pages 2 and 3 are instructions, the rest is organized by the four seasons. Each season has 4 pages dedicated to it with two large sky maps and then detailed descriptions of the items in the sky map (pages 4-19). The last two pages have listings of the constellations, the brightest and nearest stars, star types, and star characteristics (size, color, magnitude, spectral classes, and star motion). As somewhat of a neophyte, I have found it to be quite useful and it seems easy to read the pages with a red flashlight.
