This is the largest and most comprehensive atlas of the universe ever created for amateur astronomers. With finder charts of unprecedented detail, in both normal and mirror-image views, and an extensive list of 14,000 objects, it provides a detailed observing guide for almost any practical amateur astronomer, up to the most advanced. Spanning some 3,000 pages, this is a project that is possible only on CD-ROM. The CD-R pages are extensively indexed and referenced for quick location of objects. The accompanying book gives an introduction to the Atlas, showcases the maps, describes the CD-R content and organization, and includes various appendices.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"Amateur astronomer Harshaw (Stardeck Observatory, MO) compiled this recent entry in the `Practical Astronomy' series. ...The CD-ROM is well organized; it includes bank observing forms and images of more than 10,000 double stars, more than 1,400 galaxies, and other objects reachable by an amateur-size telescope. ... Charts are of excellent quality. ... Summing Up: Recommended. General readers." (M. -K. Hemenway, CHOICE, Vol. v4 (3), November, 2007)

"The printed part of the book contains clear and simple explanations of some of the basics of amateur astronomical observing ... . The heart of the work is the CD-ROM with finding charts and the listing of the 13,238 objects. ...Overall, for those amateurs in the northern hemisphere of a taxonomic bent this CD atlas would be of great assistance." (Nick Lomb, Australian Physics, Vol. 44 (4), 2007)

"Patrick Moore in his book, `Atlas of the Universe' brings many of the wonders of this space ... . The universe is big but this book makes it all very manageable. ... the book is a veritable treasure of information and pictures suitable for the young and uninitiated who want to learn more of the universe in which Earth travels. ... With copious pictures and well rounded phrases, anyone can use this book to help them travel off-planet to wherever their eyes lead them." (Mark Mortimer, Universe Today, September, 2006)
