Star Gazer’s Deep Space Atlas
Looking to add to your book collection while enhancing your star gazing experience? If so, then Vincent Nettmann, Maropeng’s resident astronomer, recommends the Star Gazer’s Deep Space Atlas by Wayne Mitchell.
This is an astronomical atlas written especially for astronomers in the Southern Hemisphere. The Star Gazer’s Deep Space Atlas is an A5 ring-bound book, which is a practical size for a “working” field guide book, printed on plasticised pages you can clean with a damp cloth and printed in white with a black background for easy reading, even when viewed with a torch at night.
For only R475 to South African readers and R725 to international readers (including shipping and postage costs), beginner and experienced star gazers alike can begin their astronomical journey of discovery.
The atlas is also the perfect companion to Maropeng's popular star-gazing evenings, which we hold every month. Check our calendar for upcoming star-gazing events.
