    Default Sky Atlas 2000.0, Deluxe Edition



    I remember there being two types of "Sky Atlas 2000.0, Deluxe Edition:"
    One having unprotected charts and the other having laminated charts but I
    can't remember how to discern which is which. I.E.: StarAtlas -vs-
    StarAtlas Deluxe? Reading the description on Orion's site
    (www.telescope.com) of "Sky Atlas 2000.0, Deluxe Edition" they mention it
    has a dew proof cover but do not mention anything about the charts. before
    I buy this could someone enlighten me.

    The charts in the unlaminated deluxe version are folded in half. The
    laminated pages are not. For the desk and field editions neither versions
    are folded in half.

    Though this is a tad late, here is what I have been able to determine
    about the six different versions of the Sky Atlas 2000 to help
    alleviate the confusion. I find the ISBN numbers particularly useful
    as some of the shopping sites have incorrect IBSN numbers matched with
    descriptions. Hope this helps.

    Amazon.com presently has this one for $35, $15 less than other vendors,
    and is the version that I ordered for myself. The laminated version is $99.

    For some inexplicable reason I cannot seem to adjust to the "black
    background/white stars" versions, as I have the laminated field version -
    1st edition(which I'm willing to sell for next to nothing plus shipping. It's
    hardly used.)

    GRRRRR! I just sent $150+ to S&T for the laminated atlas (white background)
    and the companion book. Why is that every time I buy something I find it
    cheaper the next day somewhere else:-(
