    Product Description
    Astrovisuals Planisphere Star Disc

    This double-sided Star Disc Planisphere is specially created for use in the Southern Hemisphere, latitudes 25° to 45° South (i.e. Australia, New Zealand, South America, South Africa etc.), designed by Wil Tirion to be clear and uncluttered.

    A Planisphere is essentially a star chart that functions as to display the visible stars in the sky for any time and date. Its purpose is to assist you in learning how to recognize stars and constellations, and has proven to be a big help for beginners.

    As an analogue computing instrument, it consists of two 27x24 cm adjustable disks that rotate on a common pivot, and will contain the brightest stars and constellations visible from the Southern Hemisphere.

    This Star Disc comes in clear PVC plastic, printed in black for maximum visibility and durability. With a reference guide with a list of stars, binoculars objects and planet positions valid until end of 2017, the Star Disc is an excellent kick-off to the world of astronomy.

    been looking for a low cost easy way to learn the major stars and planets in the sky! this is a great way, rather than carrying around a hard to read night sky atlas. just line up the date/time to the horizon and the direction standing and there you go. whats left in view is whats in the sky above!
