This essential reference features an alphabetical listing of every deep-sky object - 2,700 in all - plotted in Sky Atlas 2000.0, 2nd Edition. Its main section lists each star cluster, nebula, and galaxy by name, includes descriptive remarks by well-known observers, and cross-references them to their chart numbers. A second section tabulates the objects and their properties by chart number. Both sections provide coordinates, object type, constellation, and apparent magnitude. With its comprehensive introduction, easy-to-use layout, and delectable morsels of information culled from many authoritative sources, this handy guide belongs, together with Sky Atlas 2000.0 itself, on every astronomer's bookshelf.
