Jason,

I also ordered the atlas with the expedited delivery and received a tracking number, but cannot figure out which delivery service was used. Do you know?

Thanks,

Ron

Ron,

Just type in the tracking number given in the search box in the upper right at usps.com. Mine arrived a couple days ago (actually, I wasn't home at the time and it delayed it a day). I ordered it on the 30th. It took about 12 days to arrive.

The atlas is awesome. And it is *huge*

Mine just arrived today. It is fantastic!

Ordered on the 5th and it delivered yesterday with the expedite option. Mine spent 5 days clearing U.S. customs though.

Got mine this morning! Ordered it on july 26th, so it took just a skosh under two months to get. It was well worth it. I'm looking forward to looking at it more closely this evening.

Mine arrived in Israel today. I had no idea how big and heavy it is. It is truly GIGANTIC. Feels like it weighs about 20 pounds. I also didn't realize it was loose leaf format with about 300 pages. This thing is as big as the SKY!!

Just ordered my copy tonight. From Agena Astro. A little higher price, but i'm more comfortable buying from companies i know...
Actually, Agena's current price is probably less than the expedited shipping price from Pyotr.

Looks like it should be a real cool atlas! Probably won't be taking it out in the field; instead i'll probably xerox sections of interest.

I printed out the three sample pages at full size (17"x24") on one of our big map plotters at work, and they have a ton of detail on them.

I had no problem placing a US order @ $99.




Ordered mine July 27, received it October 1. Sorry it took me so long to post. The amount of detail and depth of magnitude had me lost in it but I finally found my way back to Earth.

Order mine Sept 3rd and the post office tried to deliver today (oct 19), but no one was around to sign for it. So I'll pick it up at the PO tomorrow morning.

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.

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.
