Technically pretty much all of them, as you can see pretty far into the northern hemisphere sky from many places in the southern hemisphere!

If you strictly only want those charts that show the sky that appears "southward" to someone standing on the equator then download charts 1S to 6S .... but it's only a dozen or so pages anyway, grab them all. I have these and still use them regularly after 2 years of learning about this star gazing business they're pretty good for what they are.

Hi all,

The links to Taki's atlas's noted in the original post no longer work. Taki has a new home page where these same atlas's are still available:


I really find both sets of charts, and the catalogue of objects, so very useful. Thanks for them!

Hi all.

I don't know if this has been posted, but I use the Triatlas B and C series, but the B series is fantastic. I was lucky enough several years ago to be able to print them in A3, and put them into some A3 display books. Anyway, here are the links


They are completely free, and I guess Officeworks would print them in A3, and also sell the A3 display books. This is not an ad for Officeworks, I just know that they sell and do this sort of stuff.

I tried them on A4, but it prints pretty small.....

I believe you can also print custom charts from CNebulaX. I never worked this out for myself, but I don't think it would have been hard if I had put in an hour of fiddling with it..

Cheers, Adam.
