As far as charts are concerned Aladin and DSS are both free and far in excess of what printed media can realistically provide.  I use them all the time and print off what I require as and when it seems like a good idea.

It is more the replacements for Burnham’s and Annals of the Deep Sky with which I am concerned.

I love the smell of old paper in the morning. It smells of contentment. I own many astronomical publications, a few of which are over 200 years old though very few can honestly be described as useful except in very unusual circumstances.
