Advice on new atlas

I'm thinking of buying a new star atlas called "Interstellarum Deep Sky Atlas".


 


All the references I can find on this on this say it is really comprehensive and detailed.


 


This is only just available and comes in two versions. There is the desk version at about £60 and the Field version at about £140!


 


Desk version

Field version

Obviously, I would prefer the field version with its waterproof pages, but if that is the only difference then I will get the cheaper one. I am finding that the german publishers website for this is not available. Not sure if this is temporary or permanent.


 


Maybe someone is further down the road with this than me, and could tell me if it is only the waterproof pages I would be missing out on for a massive saving of £80!

Damian,


 


It's just one of those bargain basement star maps from The Works for about three quid :whistle:


 


I had thought the same, just scan a sheet or two for an observing session, print them and bin them when they get damp. I just wanted to make sure that the cheaper one is not some cut down, less detailed version. £80 difference seems an awful lot of money just for waterproof pages. You could probably laminate every page yourself cheaper and then put them back in their spiral binding. Now that's an idea ;) .
