Abstract

That most famous of all star atlases, Norton’s, is now in its Twentieth Edition and, under the expert editorship of Ian Ridpath, is still the amateur astronomer’s favorite. Over the past decade or so it has been joined by a number of new kids on the block such as Uranometria 2000.0 and Sky Atlas 2000.0 and several planetarium-type software programs. These road maps of the night sky are invaluable for finding your way around the constellations and locating a particular star but they all suffer from the same problem.
