Constellation Charts and Tables

The charts below were produced in collaboration with Sky & Telescope magazine(Roger Sinnott & Rick Fienberg). Alan MacRobert’s constellation patterns, drawn in green in the charts, were influenced by those of H. A. Rey but in many cases were adjusted to preserve earlier traditions. The images are released under the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported license.
