The set includes:

  • interstellarum Deep Sky Atlas: An innovative, practical tool to choose and find stars, star clusters, nebulae and galaxies.  All objects are shown according to their actual visibility. Four main visibility classes separate out objects that can be seen through 4-, 8- and 12-inch telescopes. Within each visibility class, the objects are labeled in different type weights and using graduated shades and colors for the symbols. It is the ideal companion for amateur observers of all levels.
  • interstellarum Deep Sky Guide: Taking a visual approach, the Guide focuses on carefully selected objects featured in the Atlas, either as colored composite POSS plates or through the authors' own eyepiece sketches. They allow you to estimate the visibility of features in the telescope while planning observations. Stars and other objects in the vicinity are highlighted, so they also serve as finder charts at night.  Page numbers are identical to the charts in the Atlas for quick and easy navigation.
