Travel the universe with Science
Deep-Sky Star Chart allows you to explore the universe with science, discover how we can combine information tables, laws of motion and location to observe the cosmos.
WHY YOU NEED A PLANISPHERE?
There are lots of reasons to use a planisphere instead of a smartphone or computer. At the top of the list is ‘dark adaptation’, or night vision.
Furthermore, it takes over half an hour in the dark for your eyes to adapt to the low light levels. Once adapted, your eyes become very sensitive to even the dimmest light sources making it possible to see faint objects such as galaxies in your telescope.
discover messier objects
One of your first questions will certainly be, “what are the best things for me to look at in my telescope?”
Let me introduce you to the Messier catalog. It is essentially a Top-110 list of the most beautiful objects in the night sky. Press the link below to know what the Messier catalog is and how it came to be an interesting & ironic tale.
Deep-Sky Star Chart, also known as the Messier Planisphere. Was created by an amateur astronomer who wanted to make it easier to find all the deep-sky messier objects. We hope to make this brilliant and easy-to-use star chart a standard tool for the amateur astronomer.

Awesome Thing To Have
This is a great Planisphere. I love it! It is large and comfortable with a whole lot of information on it - both on the front and the back. The thing is that large is important because you will be using it at night, in the dark.
Fun Way To Learn
A easy way to learn about constellations. It's a helpful model in explaining how the stars we see in the night sky will change based on the date and time. The star chart was a much bigger hit.
Endless Treasure Hunting
The 16” diameter makes this star guide easy to see for all ages. There is seemingly endless information on the constellations, star magnitude, galaxies, globular clusters nebula all impeccably organized. And that is just the front!
