Discovering Double Stars

Discovering Double Stars
Transtextuals Books Home
New edition! Extended to 300 doubles, with more coverage of the southern sky. Each double now lists available SAO and HIP catalog numbers.
Discovering Double Stars helps you to find and learn about 300 carefully selected double stars visible to amateur observers. This series of books is specifically for those living in the glare of urban sprawls, where all but the brightest stars are lost to light pollution. Color overview charts tailored to light polluted skies show the general position of the doubles, while generously proportioned detail charts show the precise star patterns around the doubles themselves, enabling an observer to locate the stars through a finder scope.
You can support the development of this book and other books in the series by purchasing a handy printed copy of this PDF. The star charts are optimised for use with a red light torch.
