Review

What the Jumbo Edition really brings is a new level of readability in poor light. The larger star dots, deep-sky symbols, and sans-serif lettering are a terrific boon for consulting the charts under the dim glow that observers prefer, to preserve their night vision (dark adaptation). Labels now have a type size like the text in Sky & Telescope magazine. If this doesnt seem unusual, take a look at almost any other star atlas on the market today. Youll wonder (as we did) why their charts have such ridiculously tiny lettering!
