Sky Atlas 2000.0 in its second edition offers nearly 90,000 stars, with all positions derived from the Hipparcos database, the most accurate survey ever undertaken. In this Deluxe Version, the 29 charts show stars and deep-sky objects in full colour. The map area is 460 x 330 mm (18 by 13 inches). The charts are printed on heavy paper and then laminated in clear plastic. For ease of use they are unbound and boxed. In this format the Atlas will be indispensable as an aid to telescope users planning their observing by marking charts. The lamination allows felt tip or wax markers to be used.
