3. Star-Finding With A Planishphere
of the celestial sphere perplexes everyone who takes up skywatching. Sooner or later the picture snaps planisphere, The Night Sky, features star maps on both sides, one minimizing
With a Planisphere By Alan MacRobert
Adapted from Above: With a planisphere, or star wheel, you turn a disk to set your time against your date. The edge of the star map then represents the horizon all around you at that time. Some planispheres come with extra features. David Kennedal's Precision Planet and Star Locator, shown here, includes settings to build in corrections for daylight saving time and your longitude, as well as a marker on the sky map that can be dialed to any right ascension and declination. The most important aspect of a planisphere, however, is the clarity and realism of its star map. Among the many devices on the market, the Precision Planet and Star Locator and The Night Sky by David Chandler take the prize in this regard. All photographs with this article are by Chuck Baker. (Click here for larger view) T HE MOVEMENTS of the stars have taxed the human intellect throughout the ages from ancient Babylonians seeking to predict sky events, to Greek philosophers wrestling with the structure of the universe, to beginning amateurs today trying to point a new telescope at the Andromeda Galaxy. At first, the turning of the celestial sphere perplexes everyone who takes up skywatching. Sooner or later the picture snaps into place and the whole setup becomes obvious. But those who think the sky's motion is inherently simple should try explaining to a beginner why every star follows a different curved path across the sky at a different speed. And why do some stars move from west to east while most move east to west? Can you explain why some constellations turn somersaults during the night while others just tilt from side to side?

Many a Sight for the Starry-Eyed
September evening skies present many delightful sights for new and experienced stargazers alike. There is much to see no matter whether you observe with binoculars, a telescope, or just your eyes. Go outside on a clear, moonless night and enjoy the view! The distinctive W-shape of Cassiopeia , a mythical Queen, is high in the northeastern sky. Her husband Cepheus and daughter Andromeda are by her side. Nearby you will find the Andromeda Galaxy , M31, the most distant object visible to the naked eye. Look for an elongated smudge of light on a clear dark night. Can you see it? The light from the Andromeda Galaxy started its journey to us over 2 million years ago! Directly overhead lies the well known and prominent star pattern known as the Summer Triangle . Two other geometrical star patterns are also visible the Great Square of Pegasus and the much fainter Circlet in Pisces. In the opposite part of the sky

  • One of the handiest skills you can develop is called 'averted vision' (also known as 'indirect vision'). It basically means looking at something, but only out of the corner of your eye. For example, if you're looking towards the constellation of Andromeda through clear skies, and there's no light pollution (or very little light pollution), you might see a fuzzy 'smudge' in that same region. It's M31, a.k.a. the Andromeda Galaxy. Now, if you think "Wow, what's that?" and try to look directly at it, odds are you won't see it anymore. Or at least, you won't see it as well as you did when you weren't looking at it directly. While perusing the night sky you'll see many things out of the corner of your eye that will 'disappear' when you try to look directly at them. Practice averted vision, and you'll be able to pick out many more faint clusters, nebulae, and galaxies than you would while trying to keep these same objects centered in your field of view, regardless of whether you're naked-eye viewing or using a telescope. Buy yourself a good set of star charts. Or, if you like, buy an astronomy program or download a freeware astronomy program from the
