just to make a small note on JR's page
the maps are INCREDIBLE!!!!!!

second.. the Triatlas _USA-A index isnt correct. The USa maps correspond to the Triatlas A index (or close enough
the USA is still in landscape maps so it only shows 13 maps, while the euro one shows all 25.
sorry just want to help... it (and his software) are utterly amazing!!!!
I just found my favorite maps!!!

Rob,

The Index for the "A" charts seems to be incorrect as you have noted. I will pass this on to Jose and get it fixed for the next release.

Yes, these maps are incredible and we are happy you like them.

Clear Skies!!
Casey

There is an algorithm issue in the code that is affecting the "A" chart index and it is being looked into and corrected.

I suppose that I should just print the old version if I can't wait, but... Will there be a new set of Z charts in the next month or so? I've enjoyed the A and B set that I printed; I think the Z set might be even more fun.
What a wonderful gift to the community these charts are!

Steve,

Jose and I have a meeting tentatively scheduled for tomorrow to go over our progress. It looks like the panoramic set will be the first to be released and then work on the A, B, C and Z charts begin. Most of the work will be done with the exception of a few minor adjustments. Jose has been very busy at the University and his time there is at a premium now. He should be in full swing again by the end of next week with work on the charts as he is very keen on getting this accomplished.

Casey,

first of all I'd like to say thank you for this superb project!
Fantastic!!

I found that the A1 chart on the A-set is missing the constellation names overlay! Just a little head-up if you please could correct that.

EDIT: Uh...hold on, I see that atlas Z1 does not have that as well, so maybe it is supposed to be like that? sorry my ignorance on the subject...

Hey, isn't the index to the A charts fixed now in "letter" format?
Thanks; I was about to print another copy using the A4 index, but it's too cluttered.
The A one works now!

Hello everyone!!

FYI- We are getting very close to the release of the updated charts and let me tell you what, they look GOOD!!

If things go as planned (fingers crossed) you should have the new charts before Christmas.

Clear Skies!!
Casey

Just for the discussion, here it is the first trial panoramic set (in A3 by now), with 56 charts in three PDF files. The final charts will be sorted by decreasing RA, there will be zoom charts for several regions (i.e., Sagittarius center, Virgo cluster, etc), and the objects will be slightly threshold up or down in some charts. There is also a companion catalogue listing all the objects in each chart, including double stars. Casey and me still have to solve some details and want a color set too with filled outlined objects. Have a look. We thought have solved most of the problems, and the charts still keep a high limiting magnitude and a quite huge collection of DSO. These are the links:

They look really nice. I can't wait to laminate and bound it

When do you expect them to be finished, bar any delays that is

Just an FYI: all of the US Letter size links from the http://www.uv.es/jrtorres/triatlas.html are down. Seems like an configured Xserv.

Ah; same machine that jr has for the A3 panoramic too. So they aren't available either.

I believe NGC 2257 (border of Dor & Pic) has the wrong size (it is more like 3' not 30')

hello,

Sorry for the links. I have half of the triatlas files stored in my own webspace (the A4/A3 editions), whereas the letter/tabloid editions were stored in a space that was kindly donated for file sharing. That has been working during more than a year. Unfortunately, I discovered recently that all the files in the USA ftp site were deleted without warning me, and it seems that I have no access to the ftp site to reload them.

I am afraid that I have no more webspace, I have all my webspace exhausted with the CNebulaX and the TriAtlas A4/A3 files. If somebody could lend space for file sharing, I will reload them; I have no solution by now.

onwebnow: the metric paper sizes are still available; it's the US sizes that are now gone (and I was looking for).

Thank you for the kind offer. Naturally, I accept with the most pleasure. I will reload the letter/tabloid editions as soon as I have access to the ftp site (and the panoramic edition too, that Casey and me are finishing). I would like to have more web space in my own server but I have not: all the space I own is already dedicated to store these files (and CNebulaX) for sharing them with everybody.

The size for NGC 2257 is wrong in the database, indeed; it is an error coming from the databases I used to build the CNebulaX. It is a much smaller globular cluster. Thank you for the info!!! I will correct it.
