David Chandler’s Night Sky Planisphere 40-50 degree
$6.95 – $11.95
A superior star-finder. Due to the challenge presented by transcribing the dome of the sky onto a flat surface other planispheres distort the constellations near the southern horizon.
David Chandlers Night Sky Planisphere greatly reduces this distortion showing the constellations more as they really appear in the sky, making them easier to find and identify. Unlike many other star finders, this one is designed to be easy to read at night, with dark markings on a light background. To use the planisphere match the date on one wheel with the time on the other, and an instant portrait of the night sky appears in your hands. This planisphere features the constellations visible from 40-50 degrees north latitude which corresponds with north America, Europe, and Japan. The smaller size is perfect for camping or hiking.
40-50 Degrees is best for Oregon south of Salem.
