Tirion's Bright Star Atlas is a 10 map atlas of the night sky based upon the Yale Bright Star Catalog, 4th Edition. Opposite each full page map Brian Skiff of the Lowell Observatory has prepared a tabular listing of interesting objects visible in binoculars or small telescopes. These include galaxies, open clusters, diffuse nebulae, bright nebulae, planetary nebulae, double stars, and variable stars. Atlas includes a set of seasonal star maps to help orient the user to the night sky throughout practically the entire populated world. Objects in Skiff's catalog are also listed in cross referenced tables. Ideal companion atlas to the larger Sky Atlas 2000.0
