1. The Night Sky Planisphere

Generally regarded as the BEST planisphere on the market!

This sturdy, plastic laminate covered southern hemisphere sky chart is a quick and convenient way of seeing which constellations are above the horizon at any specified time and day of the year.

Sky and Telescope magazine adopted The David Chandler 'Night Sky' planisphere in 1976 and has promoted it ever since. It is widely recognised by the amateur astronomy and educational communities as the best star map on the market.

Its unique design eliminates over 90% of the distortion inherent in conventional one-sided planispheres.

"Chandler's planisphere (rotating star-finder wheel) is the finest available" Sky News

  • White background with dark stars for easy nighttime readability: a must for a planisphere.

2. Night Reader Pro astronomer's red light torch

The Night Reader Pro™ is a true Astronomer’s Flashlight built with a 630nm red LED to help you read a planisphere or atlas in the dark without depleting your night vision. There is no white light option to accidentally activate so you can use the Night Reader Pro™ planisphere reading light without worry of loosing your night vision or upsetting your neighbours at a star party. Although the light is bright enough to be used when setting up equipment, the brightness can be brought up gradually to any level desired for reading at close quarters with minimal afterimaging. The LED is shielded so the light will shine where you want it, but not directly in your eyes.

Night Reader Pro™ is made tough in the USA and carries a lifetime warranty. The standard CR2032 battery is easy to replace and will give you 36 hours or more of operation - each battery costs about AUD$0.25 to AUD$0.50 (look for packs of 10 or 20 batteries), so is affordable to replace and ubiquitous. The housing is rated IPX-4 for moisture resistance and has gold-plated contacts for reliable service. A quick-clip keychain attachment is provided to keep the light handy with fast and easy access. This light will be there when you need it and you won’t be fumbling with a split-ring attachment. With the Night Reader Pro™ clipped to a zipper on your jacket or to the strap on your binoculars you will always have a top-notch light source at the ready.
