Recently, I just begin to read O'Meare's Deep-Sky Companions The Messier Objects.

In Chapter 1 and 2, the author said that there was a general sky map in the back of the book to refer to before you use the finder chart when you find the faint objects.

Although it is not necessary for me, but I don't find any sky map in my book, a new one with a plastic package.

Does anyone have the similar issue?

Mine is an older edition (2001), but it's inside the back cover - very end of the book.

Sounds like you have the second edition. I've seen, in reviews, complaints about this edition lacking the end paper map found in the first edition, even though reference to that map were left in the text.

 

Like Ken, I have the first edition. Can't say I'm very motivated to obtain the second.

I believe there was a post here on CN about a weblink where you could download the chart - but I can't find it...
