Pocket Sized Star Recogniser
This item is worth 125 Marine Miles points!
Easily held in the palm of your hand, the Star Pocket provides quick and simple identification of stars by comparing them against a tiny illuminated built-in star map. An integrated compass provides alignment for two setting scales, one for the hour of the day or night, the other for the month and approximate date.
Pressing a button illuminates the star map to one eye while the other looks at the real thing in the heavens -same size, same shape and instantly recognisable. It will locate and identify 70 maps for the Northern and Southern Hemispheres, plus 4 templates for adjusting latitude clipped underneath the compass.
Star Pocket is supplied ready for use in Europe with a Northern star map preset for 40-50º latitude.
145mm (6") long. Stores neatly in water-resistant drawstring bag.
2 miniature batteries and full instructions included.
