Willmann-Bell, Inc. is privileged to bring to press the stunning "Next Edition"
of the world-famous Uranometria 2000.0. The most comprehensive stellar/deep sky
atlas and data resource we have seen, the three volumes of Uranometria 2000.0
are so much more than a "Second Edition," they can only be considered the
fulfillment of that process to which the first edition was but prologue.
Years in development, this massive achievement affords astronomers,
astrophotographers and CCD imagers the finest roadmap to the heavens yet
produced at such a modest price. More than 280,000 stars and over 30,000 deep
sky non-stellar objects are located with a degree of accuracy heretofore
unavailable in one resource.
Encyclopedic in nature, with beautifully redrawn maps,
a host of efficient navigation tools, and more accurate catalogue data for
three times the number of deep sky objects shown in the preceding work,
Uranometria 2000.0 is clearly an atlas and guide every telescope user,
whatever their aperture, will want to own.
The next five pages will serve to introduce you to the top-tier features
of this exciting new work, but can in no way demonstrate the incredible depth
and richness of the data presented in Uranometria.
