The Stargazer contains three important informational systems for any astronomer.
- Guide to the Northern Constellations A beginner's guide to stargazing by Robin Scagell. It explains how to use major stars and constellations to find your way around the night sky.
- Northern Hemisphere Planisphere A practical hour-by-hour tracker of the stars and constellations. Turn the oval panel to the required date and time to reveal the stars visible overhead.
- Star Chart The stars and constellations in three superb color maps: the northern and southern hemispheres and the equatorial region. All stars visible to the naked eye are shown together with fainter star clusters and nebulae for observers using binoculars or small telescopes. Constellations, double stars and variable stars are listed and an informative text explains how to use the charts throughout the year and throughout the world.
