Constellation list
A work in progress... back to main constellation page

Still to do: at least
1. * = images, captions and links.
2. Some 'Next' and 'Previous' buttons on some constellation pages do not work as advertised.
3. A short commentary/intro on the constellations, their history and the modern boundaries
4. Mention distortions of constellation boundaries to fit photographs
5. Link images to overlays with mythological figures superimposed in register (eg. from Hevelius)
6. Thumbnails, gallery and navigation
