A practical hour-by-hour tracker of the stars and constellations. Turn the oval panel to the required date and time to reveal the whole sky visible from your location. The map shows stars down to magnitude 5, plus several deep-sky objects, such as the Pleiades, the Andromeda Galaxy (M31) and the Orion Nebula (M42). The wallet contains illustrated step-by-step instructions for how to use the planisphere, how to locate planets and how to work out the time of sunrise for any day of the year. It explains all the details that can be seen on the map: the magnitudes of stars, the ecliptic and the celestial coordinates. This beginner’s guide to stargazing introduces the novice astronomer to the principal celestial objects visible at different times of the year. Major constellations are used as signposts to navigate the night sky, locating hard-to-find stars and some fascinating deep-sky objects. The movement of the stars is also explained.
