I got mine inside of a month... last night just finished affixing over a thousand reinforcement rings.

Looks great! and what a deal!

I'm hoping the reception to this atlas will inspire Piotr to publish an even bigger, deeper atlas!


How much money do you think he made printing and shipping from Poland for $99?

Well, he made at least one more C-note from me, anyway! I just ordered mine, and hope to see it before the holidays. :D

Just ordered one ($99) for my recently completed Morning Calm Observatory. Their web site indicates they are down to the last few dozen... I think that once they are gone, that's it. Oh, and I requested an autograph too!

Dunno. But he made $250, or whatever the introductory price was, from me. And, I have no regrets; it's worth the price.
At $99, it's a steal!

Check with Hands on Optics, or email Piotr directly from his web site. I think there are still copies available as people keep posting about ordering them.

I tried to order online at his site, but they're going into the cart at $1 each. I emailed him several days ago, but got no response.

The stocks of The Great Atlas of the Sky became exhausted on December 23rd. Still, all orders paid for after that date will be finalized since I am now collecting the unsold copies of the atlas from our distributors in Poland. I hope to receive approximately 50 copies of the atlas in this way. The collected copies will be shipped out to clients starting from around January 10th. Until this date no express orders will be processed.

Thus, further orders can be placed at will – when the number of new orders exceeds 50, I will post a separate message on cludynights forum, and if there is not enough copies, the money will be reimbursed immediately. Once all copies collected from distributors’ warehouses are sold, the sales of the greatest atlas of the sky will be definitively closed.
