A convenient package that includes a copy of the Deep Sky Observer's Guide as well as deep sky charts and calendar.

'Deep Sky' refers to the universe beyond our own solar system. Using binoculars or telescopes, any sky-gazer can become a deep sky observer. Deep Sky Observer's Pack looks beyond individual stars to target:

  • Star clusters
  • Double Stars
  • Nebulae
  • Galaxies.

The Deep Sky Observer's Guide (also available separately 1-55407-024-4) introduces the basics of observing and explains what equipment is required. A chapter is devoted to each type of deep sky target. There are more than 200 such objects featured, with 126 color illustrations and star-finder charts.

The Deep Sky Star Chart features three large-scale sky maps: the northern and southern hemispheres and the equatorial region, that show more than 200 stars and objects.

The Deep Sky Calendar is a glossy poster featuring fifty-two deep sky targets for each week of the year. The object's name, catalogue designation and co-ordinates are provided along with equipment recommendations.
