9780007213238: Collins Star Finder Pack

All you need to get the most out of observing the night sky: a large, full-colour star map, a star finder and a booklet which explains the best way to observe the stars and map out future positions of the planets.

The multitude of stars in the sky can be confusing, but Collins Star Finder Pack gives you everything you need to identify the stars.

The large star finder is simple to use: just dial in the date and time by rotating the inner plastic disk (the time) until it lines up with the relevant day of the year calibrated on the outer ring. The portion of sky shown on the planisphere will show the arrangement of the stars above you.

The star finder is accompanied by a 32-page booklet explaining the best way to observe the night sky,and also shows the positions of the planets for the next five years.

The colour wall chart contains a map of the night sky, plus details of all the other features you can find, including galaxies, comets, asteroids and the planets. It also contains a seasonal guide on how to find your way around the night sky, allowing the beginner to quickly understand where to look for Polaris or the Pleiades.
