Constellation Charts

Recommended Posts

Hello!

Does anyone know where I can find some good (free?) downloadable charts for learning the constellations please?  The sites I seem to be finding are all very specific, ie you put in a location, date and even time.  I would like just general charts that can be kept out all night, rotated through the night and then reused the next.

I know I've seen something like this before but I can't think where so was hoping you lovely astropeople would know of some good sites maybe  :)

Thank you.

It sounds like you need a planisphere. They can either be bought online (make sure you get one for your location) or maybe build a DIY using a site like this ? https://in-the-sky.org/planisphere/

Check out the Tri Atlas,

Download and print the charts you need, I did the "panoramic B set" in A3 size (A4 too small for my aging eyes) and laminated it to keep it dry.

Though I could probably have done without printing the most southern parts of the sky I will never see from my location  :grin:
