Franklin-Adams charts




An early photographic atlas of the sky by the English amateur astronomer John Franklin-Adams (1843–1912), based on plates taken at Johannesburg, South Africa, and Godalming, England, and published posthumously in 1913–1914. There are 206 charts covering the whole sky, each 15° square, and showing stars as faint as 17th magnitude.
