This magnificent star map shows the various constellations visible in the Northern Hemisphere throughout the year. Stars are shown according to a scale of magnitude, which roughly approximates to their brightness in the night sky.
In addition to labeling many of the individual celestial bodies, attractive illustrations highlight the constructed imagery around famous constellations such as Ursa Major, Cassiopeia, and Ursa Minor. The last features the North Star prominently in the center of the image.
