What is a star map?
A star map shows what the sky looks like on a specific date and time of day, from a specific location. You see the position of stars, constellations and planets as if you were looking at the sky at that moment.
How do you place the stars and constellations?
Have you ever played with a star finder as a kid or used a stargazing app on your phone? Then you’ll see that this is the same principle in action. Our star maps show the portion of the sky that you would see if you were observing the sky on a specific date, time and latitude. Nowadays, even consumer telescopes have apps to automatically find and track a specific astronomical object, the Betelgeuse star for instance, during an observation night. The astronomical objects positions on our star maps are calculated with the data from the Hipparcos astrometric mission by the European Space Agency.
I plan to offer a star map as a wedding gift. Can I make one for a date in the future?
Yes, absolutely, it works for dates in the future too.
Where should I have the digital file printed?
The digital file can be printed at a local or online copy shop or photo lab, just like you would have a photo printed. You can print 8×10, 11×14, 12×16 and 16×20 inches sizes with the same file. We suggest matte fine arts paper or matte photo paper for the best results.
