The Cambridge Double Star Atlas

The Cambridge Double Star Atlas (thumbnail) A review on astronomy enthusiast site Cloudy Nights of the new Cambridge Double Star Atlas, which, unlike the Cambridge Star Atlas itself (reviewed last month), is coil-bound rather than hardcover. The reviewer, a double star observer, compares its usefulness in the field to Sky and Telescope’s Pocket Sky Atlas (also reviewed last month): “The CDSA is bigger, easier to read, has plenty of objects for owners of smaller scopes, but also plots wickedly difficult doubles for 10-inch scopes and bigger who have dynamite skies year round and don’t live below sea level as I do. … For its intended goal, double star observing, it gets my unreserved recommendation.”
