'Deep Sky hunter' is a printable deep sky atlas designed for serious deep sky observers. It features stars down to magnitude 10.2 and DSO down to magnitude 14 plotted on 101 A3 charts which cover the entire sky. Manual post-editing was performed in order to ensure non-cluttered charts with readable labels. The atlas also features 21 supplement 'zoom' charts of galaxy clusters and densly populated areas, and indications of over 500 'best' objects.

The maps were designed for A3 pages, however some find it usable on A4 as well. In terms of scale and amount of detail 'DeepSky Hunter' falls between Sky Atlas 2000 and Uranometria 2000. Here you can see a comparison with other atlases.

Beginners and smaller telescope owners who find this atlas over cluttered - should check out my first release of deep-sky atlas ('TheSky' which is designed for A4).


The second revision (jun 2017) features the following updates:

  • A fix of numerous labeling, indexing, position errors. Lots of labeling tweaks
  • Added magnitude key at the top of each chart
  • Added 'field edition' version (white text over black background)
  • Optimized the PDF file (12MB instead of 50MB). Fixed chart 20 printing issues

Objects without magnitude (i.e. dark nebulae) are also listed. The list is limited to declination -60°. Objects are sorted by catalog number, starting with Messier list, then NGC, IC and so on. 'Best' objects are marked in bold. Note that some inconsistencies might be present, due to different catalog designations which a specific object might have.

Printing Instructions:

Pdf Free Download For Windows 7

For best results print this atlas on A3 pages, in black & white, portrait orientation, at 600 dpi resolution. Make sure that 'reduce to printer margins' option is checked. Cover should be the first page, then a spread of index1 and index2 followed by the rest. Or simply print the whole PDF document, starting with the cover page. If you choose to laminate the atlas - you may use a metal ring binder (see the following picture). To print the atlas Acrobat reader is required.

Notes and Copyright Information:

Compared to many other atlases - this release is much less cluttered with information which is often useless for deep sky observers (variable stars, extremely faint DSO, etc). Also the labels are well spaced and do not overlap with other labels and stars.

Combined database of deep sky objects was used, including Messier, NGC, IC, PGC, UGC, MGC, PK, Barnard and numerous catalogs of star clusters. Common names of deep sky objects were taken from from various sources.

Thumbnail images for object lists were taken from NGC/IC Project database, and Negative DSS images were used (data courtesy of the Digital Sky Survey). DSO list was compiled using SAC 7.7 Deep sky database (data courtesy of the Saguaro Astronomy Club).
