No other single star chart includes so many objects!
A Description of Every Object
The large rectangular map covers the sky from declination +70° to �60°. On the back side is a map of the northern circumpolar region as well as a listing of essential data for each of the 600 plotted celestial objects, including coordinates, apparent magnitude, angular size, and even a brief visual description. Helpful text offers tips on using the DeepMap 600, general observing hints, and more.
