Astronomy observation help
Hier is `n ideale begin vir amateur sterrekundiges wat nog nie sterkaarte aangeskaf het nie.
Jy kry die 18 gelamineerde sterkaarte in kleur. (A4-grootte en in JPG- en Pdf-formaat). Ook `n CD met al die kaarte en `n klomp NASA-foto's).   (Hannes Pieterse)
  • Bestel dit by die Johannesburg Planetarium. Inligting onder.
STAR CHARTS - 18 printed charts plus CD.

A series of 18 maps (nine double-sided A4 pages) +CD covering the entire sky and showing the positions of star clusters, nebulae, galaxies and double and variable stars. The constellation lis are the same as those on the Star Disc (see below) to make identification easier. The charts have a southern hemisphere orientation (with south at the top) and have a water resistant laminate coat to make them more durable when used outside. An additional reference guide provides an overall view of all 18 charts, plus instructions about their use and an index to the constellations and major stars. Charts by Wil Tirion.

CD contains JPEG and PDF files of all charts with both southern and northern hemisphere orientation, additional Star Maps, reference guides, indexes, and 300 bonus NASA images.
Send email to Johannesburg Planetarium: and the Banking details will be send to you.
The cost is R174 + R25 postage (Registered with trace number)
  • I ordered on a Thursday and it was delivered on Tuesday. How is that for service. Claire Flanegan from the Planetarium will see that you get your charts and the CD asap.
