Orion Star Target Planisphere
Just dial in the date and time and the Orion Star Target Planisphere shows the night sky above.
The Orion Star Target Planisphere available from Amazon is an indispensible tool for finding your way around the starry sky. It doesn't matter whether you're skywatching with just your eyes, with binoculars, or with a telescope, it's essential for learning constellations, identifying bright stars, and planning observing sessions.
Star Target features a detailed star map drafted by celestial cartographer Wil Tirion.
It shows all constellations visible from mid-northern latitudes (30-deg to 50-deg) and the locations of 100 showpiece star clusters, nebulas, and galaxies for viewing with binoculars or a telescope.
You just dial in the date and time and Star Target displays a current map of the night sky. On the back are simple instructions plus viewing tips and a calendar of annual meteor showers.
You will find that it is a lot quicker and much more convenient to use than planetarium software on a computer, as it can be used outside and direct comparisons can be made by holding the Planisphere up against the sky to identify stars and other objects.
