I only own the 21 century atlas and agree it's wonderful!, can't wait to get it calibrated to what my eye sees in my larger scope (yes my large one isn't big by many standards) withing what seeing conditions will allow. I think that a signature of a really good guide / atlas in that it encourages you to observe.

Lots of errors, but this is normal with the rush to get first edition out. Customers and proof readers find the errors and correct them for the second edition, but that will not be till they sell out first.

Here's "MY" deal!! When the second edition comes out with ALL the corrections....my first ed. with the errors becomes my field guide, and goes into my eyepiece case!!! No problems....and it's a cool problemsolver!!!

Works for me. Besides, most of the errors I saw aren't really that big of a deal and don't affect the usefulness of the atlas IMHO.

I ordered mine exactly one month ago and still don't have it. I'll wait until the end of this week before contacting the author about this.

You've already waited too long to contact the author.

That's great, Tom. You had much more patience than I did. Enjoy it, it is a very nice piece of work. Haven't been able to get out and use mine either because of weather. Hopefully, soon!
