A Planisphere is a hand held aid used to identify which stars and constellations are visible on any particular date and time. Planisphere’s are perpetual (It will last for your lifetime!). The 'Night Sky' Planisphere is a high precision, low distortion aid to the visual observer. It is double sided, designed for the southern hemisphere, and printed with a light background for easy night readability. Its plastic construction makes for a durable and moisture resistant product. To use this Planisphere is easy. Just turn the disk so the date lines up with the time and it will show you what the sky looks like now. It's that simple! Included is Quasar's unique Planet Finder card, which gives the approximate position of the five naked eye planets, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn.
