3D Star Atlas Outdoor Gadgets

This cool looking 3D star atlas allows star gazers to locate and identify celestial objects from anywhere on earth, regardless of location, date or time of day. Being spherical in nature, the 3D Star Atlas is much easier to consult in identifying objects over it’s 2D counterparts.

This 16″ in diameter atlas contains a 5″ earth at the center of it. Using a series of rotary knobs, the earth, horizon ring and sun can all be lined up. Once everything is aligned correctly, you can then view the constellations on the 3D star atlas as they would appear in the night sky in your part of the world.
