Description

From the reviews:

"The Star Atlas Companion is a necessary addition to every amateur astronomer who is interested in how the stars and star clusters one might observe with a small to medium telescope would actually appear. ... this book is helpful for planning your observations and finding out more about the stars and constellations ... . It contains a lot of information, possibly more than some of the smart computerized guidance systems that some telescopes have." (Kadri Tinn, AstroMadness.com, April, 2014)

"The Star Atlas Companion fills an important niche. Targeted for the amateur astronomer, the book provides detailed information on the thousands of stars that make up the constellations; many star atlases do not feature this level of granularity. ... The writing is detailed, straightforward, and well suited to an amateur audience; useful black-and-white illustrations on each constellation support the text. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower- and upper-division undergraduates and general audiences." (P. J. West, Choice, Vol. 50 (4), December, 2012)
