David H. Levy’s Guide to the Stars
David H. Levy, 2000, Den Pr, ISBN 1928771017
A good tool for new stargazers ages 12 and older, Levy’s planisphere makes locating night sky objects with accuracy, including the Milky Way, a little less daunting. This oversized star wheel (16” in diameter) is all plastic (making it very durable) and contains useful information on the front and back.
