Contents
Maps and text show stars down to magnitude 5.5 -- all visible with binoculars or a small telescope. Opposite each map is a photo-realistic image that shows how the same portion of sky looks to the naked eye, allowing less experienced observers to quickly find specific objects of interest. The maps can be used for planning observations, navigating from one part of the sky to another, and for a quick reference guide
