Format: Spiral-bound
Upon opening this book one is greeted by thick, substantial pages that I believe will stand the test of time. Size is very moderate, fitting it into an eyepiece case would not be too much of a chore. 'Required' information is very accessible; inside the front cover are the basics of measurement in relation to the maps contained within; even a simple diagram relating the size of field of view in an eyepiece in relation to the maps -a small addition, but a very nice touch, extremely useful but seldom seen in books. There are eight "sections" divided in accordance with the time of year they will be most visible, and a legend is conveniently reprinted at the beginning of each one.

The book is spiral bound and can be folded over on itself, or used face open as maps on opposing pages slightly overlap and are contiguous (which I found very clever). This is a step beyond the basic star maps one will find in most books, and some knowledge of the skies will go a long way toward helping you use it. Stars down to magnitude 7.6 are included, near what you might expect to see in a finderscope which makes it a very suitable companion to a telescope (the reason I bought it). There are tons of galaxies, nebulae, star clusters and other deep space objects listed, but unfortunately no guide as far as magnitude on them. Each page is a bit bigger than the constellation Orion, approximately 20° x 50°. This is a very good reference to "flesh out" the sky when used in conjunction with a less detailed chart, with an extensive index to help find whatever you're seeking.

Conclusion? This book is very close to five stars with all of its features, and I'm glad they didn't introduce clutter with too much info, that which is provided gives a 'just enough' feeling to me.

This book id for some one who has knowledge of the night sky.
If you are just starting out look elsewhere for a true beginner sky chart.
If you have been watching for a year or two then this book is great.
I use it on clear nights just to match up stars, works well.

I needed a star atlas because I started up my hobby of amateur astronomy again. This is an ideal star atlas because it is compact
so I can use it with me beside my telescope while I am observing. Although small it is very detailed and full of interesting objects to
observe. This compact star atlas shows stars down to 7.6 magnitude, where other compact star atlases do not show stars this faint.

I have a few sky charts but they are kind of bulky to be using at the scope.

This smaller atlas (that is not a pocket book as it states) fits the bill nicely and fits on an aviation kneeboard (I use one at the scope).

The book is coil bound and the pages have a laminate on them to protect from dew. Not too cluttered but has plenty of info.

It contains "almost" as much info as my Cambridge Double Star Atlas (also a must have and linked below).
