Star Chart   Leave a comment

Firefly published a 15-inch planisphere with all stars to sixth magnitude visible from 40 degrees North.  I have scanned in both sides in order to make a 36-inch planisphere that is much easier to read.  Here is an example of the detail.  The darker area is the Milky Way.  At this screen scale, the planisphere would be eight feet across (2.4 meters).
