We have been recommending astronomers with big scopes download the TriAtlas for a few years now.

A customer just reminded me about it, so I though I better post it again for everyone.

http://www.uv.es/jrtorres/triatlas.html

The TriAtlas is designed to be printed on large format paper (although you can print it on any size you like).

What makes it so great is:

1. You print just the pages you need. No leafing through Southern or Northern Hemisphere pages that you can't see from your location.

2. You can write on it without guilt. The next day you can transcribe your notes in your best hand to your reference copy.

3. You can pass out a bunch of specific pages to others at a gathering.

4. You can print them on 36" paper, and have them laminated.

5. It goes deep. Some of the charts go to 16.5 magnitude

6. It's free!
