Choice Review

This comprehensive star atlas by designer Wil Tirion and colleagues offers 220 charts (20 of which overlap volumes 1 and 2) with more than 280,000 stars to limiting magnitude 9.75 based on the Hipparcos/Tycho database. In addition to making factual corrections from the first edition, some reorganization now puts the overview maps up front in volumes one and two: a 22-map, 6.5-magnitude atlas keyed to the volume and four large-scale finder charts. The indexes provide lists of common names of bright stars, Messier objects, and NGC objects. Clear overlay templates are included with volume 2. Volume 3 is a field guide arranged by chart number that provides detail on each of the more than 30,000 non-stellar (e.g., nebulae and galaxies) objects that appear in the other volumes. This fantastic observing aid is what distinguishes the set from other resources. The printing, on good quality paper, is excellent, and the pages easily lie flat (important for outdoor use). The only competitor in print is the bulkier Millennium Star Atlas, by Roger W. Sinnott and Michael A.C. Perryman (CH, Oct'98) with more than a million stars in 1,548 charts, but without a similar guide. Recommended. General readers; upper-division undergraduates. M.-K.
