Summary

First published in 1910, Norton's Star Atlas is now world-renowned as the indispensable companion for all those who can scan the sky with the naked eye, binoculars and small telescopes. The nineteenth edition has undergone a thorough revision of the text and tables. The book serves both as a reference handbook and atlas and contains practical main information that is difficult to obtain elsewhere. Intended for the serious amateur astronomer, the book's main feature is the star maps, which have been reproduced using state-of-the-art computer techniques. They are uniquely arranged to cover a slice of approximately one-fifth of the sky, including stars, down to the naked-eye limit. As a result no constellation is inconveniently broken up.
