The PlanetQuest Observing Cards are designed to give telescope operators and other night sky interpreters a new way of explaining the night sky to your scope's visitors. Relating common observing objects to our search for exoplanets makes these spectacular sights more understandable.

 You can download the PDFs to your tablet or even print them out onto cardstock. The PDFs are available in both color and night-vision friendly red light editions. For best results when viewing the cards, use the free Adobe Acrobat Reader software.
