Can you ship to Israel? Paypal says I can't use that as a shipping address.

I think I might get one too. The price makes it hard to resist.

Could you tell us how many of these were printed in total? All in English?

That's quite a discount! If I didn't already have one I'd be all over this. I already notified my observing buddy Dinsdale, who doesn't hang out on CN.

OK, everyone who moans about missing out on the Millennium Star Atlas, the Herald-Bobroff Astroatlas, the Rukl Moon Altas, etc. - this is your chance to score while the scoring is good. Don't wait until it's $2000 on the used market.

Piotr,
The atlas is a superb work. I hope you've made a profit on it, and that maybe you're planning a digital version for those poor, misguided souls that don't care for printed atlases.

Rick,

This atlas is going to be a collection piece.

Rick, that's exactly why I jumped on this when I read it. I was at work, but our computers at work wouldn't let me access the section of the web page to purchase the charts. I was sure they were going to be gone before I got off work, so I borrowed a co-workers smart phone to make the purchase. I've never made so many fat-fingered mistakes in my life. I don't see how people use those things! I wonder if Agena is selling them for the same price?

Awesome deal. Now I'm in trouble since I also just spent $200 at Astronomics new store. Very cool place! Can't wait to see the atlas.

Hey you guys - at least leave a pointer in the Stellar Media forum pointing here! This forum doesn't get as much traffic, and that was a good place for it!

Shipping to Israel is not problem for me. If you can't to use PayPal - you use bank transfer.

ATT will soon publish a review of this remarkable Atlas, and it is a steal at this price!

I had no problem placing a US order @ $99.
On a different note, I find it interesting that the site says, "...the edition will not be reissued!" I wonder if eventually a new edition will be issued, perhaps with the galaxies indicated differently. It would be helpful to see galaxy symbols as something more indicative of the type of galaxy, spiral, face-on, edge-on, etc. I wonder.

My hunch is, Piotr figures he's maxed out the printed atlas market, and it wouldn't pay to do another run (and he's probably right). I expect a digital version soon. Maybe updated with some dark nebulae, a catalog, and a built in search engine? That would be a good companion to the atlas, as well as a good stand-alone product. It'd be hard to resist ordering one. And he could burn copies for almost nothing!

I ordered Monday, the Atlas got delivered today (Thursday). I like it .
The plotting and labeling quality is very good, the image scale is perfect for the amount of information that is presented.
The individual, removable maps in a strong binder are much better for use at the telescope than a "book" atlas!
At the discounted price it's incredible value for money - having seen it now, I wouldn't hesitate ordering it at the full price.

Robert
