I don’t have this one, but I do have the full 17-volume Tycho & Hipparcos catalogue which I picked up 2nd hand for £250.

The relevance is that volumes 14-16 are essentially the MSA, though printed at a slightly smaller scale. A superb atlas.

Incidentally, if you are going for Uranometria 2000, get Vol 2 as well.  Otherwise you will be restricted to the northern hemisphere.  Even up in sub-arctic Britain quite a bit of the southern sky is visible.  I wish I had realised that when I bought only V1 and now regret the decision to save money.

Added in edit: just bought a “like-new” copy of U2000-V2.  Thanks for prompting me!
