Planisphere: Latitude 42 Degrees

$19.99 CAD

The planisphere shows the position of the stars for every night of the year. Icons describe star magnitudes -- the larger the symbol, the brighter the star -- making it easy to locate specific stars. Stargazers will be able to identify planets, stars, constellations, globular clusters, nebulas, galaxies and other celestial wonders.

Features include:

  • At-a-glance coordinates for locating the brightest objects in the sky
  • Planetary tables to locate Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn, now improved for easier use
  • An overlay window with a new shape for better viewing
  • Times of sunrise and sunset for each day
  • Declination and right ascension scales
  • The ecliptic path.

 

The planisphere's booklet provides accurate information on bright and faint stars, the Milky Way and deep-sky searching. Other topics include:

  • How to use the planisphere
  • Finding planets, sunrise and sunset
  • How to read a star map
  • Learning the sky
  • Exploring the skies, season by season.
