3-D Atlas of Stars and Galaxies by Richard Monkhouse

By Richard Monkhouse

This astronomical atlas positive aspects not just traditional famous person and galaxy maps, but in addition fantastic three-d stereographs (glasses provided). The ebook comprises 3 units of finished full-sky maps that conceal neighborhood area, nearby area, and far away house -- with over 20,000 galaxies. the entire stereographs were derived from the main actual facts to be had, together with effects from the Hipparcos satellite tv for pc, and will be used to degree the approximate distances among the items depicted. The far away area maps characterize some of the most whole mappings of the galaxies on hand to novice astronomers, and their accompanying three-d perspectives supply tantalising glimpses of constitution on the greatest scale of the universe.
