Edited November 18, by John. I’ve also got my observing logbook a spreadsheet on there now. Or perhaps is is edge-on— even bright ones like this are sometimes hard to find. Even though Cragin started with the very best professional data available literally tens of thousands of corrections, large and small, were made. Many moons ago my wife gave me a copy of U as a present when it was first published.
Using its detailed charts, we were 200 to star-hop to a few of them, some with uranometri brightnesses below 13 magnitudes per square arcminute. Take galaxies for example. Posted 28 April – Posted November 18, edited.
The richness inherent in Uranometria After much consideration, I took an exacto knife and cut each page from the binding and kept them as “originals” using to make Xerox copies to stick in a clear sheet protector for use at the scope. Click on map for full size image. Not sure where it is? No other large-scale atlas has this attention to detail, nor anywhere near as many objects—by a factor of 3!
The All Sky must be newer then. Stars are continuously tapered to create a more realistic perspective Details. Posted 09 May – I always take out my Sky and Telescope Atlas plus either the Uranometria or Instellarium Atlas and place them in a large plastic box.

All by itself this atlas has created a little revolution in the world of amateur astronomy. MegaStar looks very capable, but the only issue I wanted to address is depiction of dark nebula, which in SkySafari makes confirmation of an observation problematic.
I got mine for 30p. Flyingsnow – Today, On 18 November at You can still buy the original red cover S Iranometria volume on Amazon. Don’t get me wrong, I love U for indoor browsing but don’t want to go back to carrying 20 pounds of books out in the field. All intermediate and serious amateur astronomers will want to own this definitive star atlas.
Well, if this describes you, then you might not know it yet but you need a copy of Uranometria An iPad version of U would be ideal.
I have been using SkySafari for years now, but ironically with NV I find myself going old school on the atlas due to the better depiction of large-scale bright and dark nebula.
I suppose I could scan my copies, but it would be a big project and I may have to cut the pages out to get them to lay flat on the scanner. I just love printed star charts!
So, I emailed Wil Tirion and we exchanged emails. You need to be a member in order to leave a comment. The last word in star atlases. You can make it a white background if desired, and set the magnitude limits anywhere you want.
