Star Disc Planisphere



A Planisphere is simple star chart - a rotating disk within a cover. With a planisphere one can determine which stars and constellations are visible at any time, on any date.  Planispheres are designed for a specific latitude - a planisphere designed for the UK is useless in South Africa.

A planisphere is a great tool for getting to know the stars from town, finding less-prominent constellations when you are out in the bush, and planning your observing session at the telescope.
