Astronomy Library Uranometria 2000.0 All-Sky Edition - DISCONTINUED -
Uranometria 2000.0 Deep Sky Atlas - All Sky Edition
When Johannes Bayer penned the first Uranometria star catalog in 1603 he began a traditional that remains part of every telescope enthusiast library and an indispensable tool for all serious astronomers. Continuing in the tradition is the unsurpassed workmanship of Wil Tirion and co-authors Barry Rappaport, and Will Remaklus and Willmann-Bell, Inc. is privileged to bring to press the stunning "All Sky Edition" of the world-famous Uranometria 2000.0.
More than 280,000 stars, 25,895 galaxies, and over 30,000 deep sky non-stellar objects are located with a degree of accuracy heretofore unavailable in one resource. Encyclopedic in nature, with beautifully redrawn maps, a host of efficient navigation tools, and more accurate catalog data for three times the number of deep sky objects shown in the preceding work, Uranometria 2000.0 is clearly an atlas and guide every telescope user, whatever their aperture, will want to own.
