About This Map
Star chart that shows the sky of both the northern and southern hemispheres from the equinoctial to 65 degrees north and south. This map is unusual in that it shows the constellations as if looking down on the Earth as opposed to looking out, so the constellations are reversed.
Title: A Mercator Map of the Starry Heavens, Comprehending the Whole Equinoctial and Terminated by the Polar Circles
