Celestial Atlas Menor - NOT AVAILABLE -

Celestial Atlas Menor

The night sky can be an intimidating sight- infinite in scope and majesty, the countless stars shining in the heavens in all their multitude of patterns. Sometimes, you need a guide to find what you are searching for in that collosal view- and the Celestial Atlas Menor is just that guide. Intended to be of use to any observer- new or old-, the Celestial Atlas Menor works to a +5.5 Inch Magnitude limit for stars, and a +11.5 Magnitude Limit for celestial objects in general. This range of magnitude means that it is of use both for naked-eye stargazing, and for those using the more popular size of scopes.
