The standard against which all other star atlases are measured. Each edition of Sky Atlas 2000.0 contains 26 large charts covering the whole sky, showing 81,312 single, multiple, and variable stars down to magnitude 8.5 and 2,700 of the best deep-sky objects scattered among them.

"There's a reason this atlas is so heavy - it's a heavy-duty observing tool. It goes deep enough (magnitude 8.5) to guide me through a session of telescopic observing. Its laminated pages are good for use on those dew-heavy evenings/mornings, plus robust enough to take as many wax pencil markings as I need to make to plan or record my observing sessions." S. N. Johnson-Roehr (Sky & Telescope)
