This map attempts to plot the sky into a rectangular shape by replacing North/South with Declination, and East/West with Right Ascension. Thus it has the same plotting issues as the Mercator projection, for example while the Little Dipper is a very small section of the sky, it's drawn here across the entire top due to its polar position.

Thanks! I was inspired by this quiz of Stewart's, but I felt like it needed more constellations (as in all of them). Took a while to find a rectangular map I liked, and then an extreme amount of editing to get it where I liked it.

This is absolutely incredible! I also love how you color-coded based on the constellation’s inventor… absolutely astonishing work!

Cheers, I know the different groups won't necessarily help a lot of people, but it'll make a lot of us northern-hemisphereites at least feel better after being completely clueless on the Bayer and La Caille groups.

Thanks! Though from a Quantum Mechanist, I have to wonder if it's simultaneously not...
