ASTROGATOR'S HANDBOOK

ISBN 1-929381-42-5

The Astrgator's HandbookWriters of science fiction have an interest in astronomy that is different from that of just about everyone else on Earth. We don’t care where the stars appear in the night sky of Earth. We want to know where they are with respect to one another. Our motto is: “Forget the pretty lights in the sky! Tell me how to get from Procyon to Aldebaran by the shortest possible route!”

The Sci Fi - Arizona Astrogator’s Handbook, Expanded Edition does just that. We show you local space as viewed from the vicinity of Polaris, the North Star, using a 3-D layered mapping system that makes it easy to visualize the positions of the stars in the sky and their relationships to one another. Included in the handbook are:

  • 60 pages of instructions and information concerning astronomy.

  • 7 overview star maps showing the 3500 stars in a 150 light-year cube centered on Sol.

  • 63 quadrant star maps showing the same stars with detailed information such as name, position, and spectral type.

  • 120 pages of tables of supporting data giving additional information on each star.

  • Indexes and diagrams that make navigating between the maps and tables effortless and intuitive.

  • Designed such that the maps can be removed and combined to show a full 150 x 150 x 25 light-year slice of space at a glance.

  • The electronic edition is downloaded in three files for maximum efficiency.

  • The hardcopy edition comes in a 3-ring binder that allows the maps to be removed and replaced multiple times for ease of use.
