    Re: STARS below ?? declination are never visible.

    Just a simple question, on internet I did not find the answer.  I live on 52° North at sealevel. I can never see Stars (above the horizon)  that have a S declination more then ?? °regards  HermanD

    See below.  38 degrees South plus about 1/2 degree for atmospheric refraction.  My answer confirmed by the Philips' Planisphere for 51.5 degrees North, readily available for purchase still on the www  https://www.amazon.co.uk/d/Books/Philips-Planisphere-Latitude-51-5-North/1849071888/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1485340397&sr=8-1&keywords=Philips+planisphere  , which would suit you fine at 52 degrees North Herman. DaveP
