These star charts are great for beginners, and contain a series of 18 maps (nine double-sided A4 pages) + a CD covering the entire sky. The maps show the positions of star clusters, nebulae, galaxies and double and variable stars.
The constellation lines are the same as those on the Star Disc Planisphere to make identification easier. The charts have a southern hemisphere orientation (with south at the top) and have a water resistant laminate coat to make them more durable when used outside.
An additional reference guide provides an overall view of all 18 charts, plus instructions about their use and an index to the constellations and major stars. Charts by Wil Tirion.
The CD contains JPEG and PDF files of all charts with both southern and northern hemisphere orientation, additional Star Maps, reference guides, indexes, and 300 bonus NASA images.
