Making Your Own Star Charts

 

This star chart is produced using the Cartes du Ciel Sky Charts program written by Patrick Chevalley.

This free program runs on Windows and Macintosh computers. If you are interested in making your own star charts for use at home or school, you may obtain a copy of the program and its documentation from this website.

This program is very powerful and can be used to generate star charts far more detailed than the one provided here.
