Caption: Northern celestial map. Historical map of the sky of the northern hemisphere, showing the stars and mythological drawings of the constellations. This map is centred on the geographic north pole, with the plane of the ecliptic (arching through lower centre) showing the constellations of the northern zodiac. The zodiac shows the Sun's passage through the sky throughout the year, and does not align to the geographic equator because the Earth is tilted on its axis. The relative brightness of the stars is shown, as well as the Milky Way. Map published in Germany in 1795.
