This photographic star atlas shows the entire sky on 82 charts. The chart arrangement is shown on the endpapers, and a schematic depiction is given on page 9. The scale at the center of each field is 1° per cm (2.54° per inch) for all charts. Stars are shown down to approximately 14th magnitude.
The star atlas lists 1593 deep sky objects, all of which can be identified on the photographs. Object designators are based on the catalog of the Eye & Telescope v3.0 software [Pfl2011], which features one of the best error-corrected object databases. In a few cases, these designators may differ from those found in non-corrected catalogs or planetarium software.
