Planispheres Rule.
This is a wonderful tool. It works in the field and is also quite a nice educational aid to learn the night sky. I used to spend time printing star charts, or dragging out a full book of charts from which I only needed one or two pages. Now, If I am ...

Nicely done - and large.
This is very nice with the info on the back being very handy. The one downside is that it is big and thus a bit awkward to use at times.

Messier finder
The item was meant as a gift and it's recipient really appreciated it. One negative - shipping. I ordered the object on the 7th and didn't receive it until the 19th. It spent 5 days sitting in CA. Offer a better shipping method. USPS Media ...

Worth every penny
I can't say enough good things about this planisphere. It's large size is a major plus. The plastic construction lessens the wear and tear you usually get with a cardboard planisphere. The star field is impressive and makes finding the Mes...

Right Size, Right Features
I bought the "Messier Observer's Planisphere - Large 18" Star / Constellation Finder" to help identify alignment starts for my Dobsonian telescope, plus locate DSOs for observation. Not only does this planisphere work well but the...

Road Atlas for the Total Solar Eclipse 2017 - black/white ed.
Do not buy the black and white addition. It is poorly printed and difficult to read.

Nice product!
This planisphere turned out to be everything I expected. And, I was very pleased with the quality of manufacture. Easy to read by red-light, type size great for my aged eyes (this is the larger size item). I am sure I will have this for a long time t...

Just the thing for old school navigation
With the advent of go-to mounts the skill of star hopping is being lost but w/ this simple device it is much easier to recover the lost technique.....

For some reason the background
For some reason the background of every page is grey instead of white, making it hard to read.

Exactly what it claims to be
It has maps of all areas in the United States the full solar eclipse will cover, including the duration. One thing to note is that the maps are tilted slightly to make the line of the eclipse horizontal in the middle of the page (by design).

Best Planisphere I've Seen!
I can't improve on "alanoodle's" review but I just wanted to say how easy this aid is to read- day and night. I have the Pocket Sky Atlas (jumbo) but for speedy location of primary constellations and targets, this planisphere can&...
