Doppelmayr: Constellations of the southern hemisphere

Nice example of Johanne Doppelmayr’s map of the Southern Skies, with the constellations shown and the various stars illustrated in gold.

Dopplemayr’s decorative celestial chart illustrates the southern sky form the south ecliptic pole to ecliptic. The constellations are delineated based upon the catalogue of Johannes Hevelius and include Orion, Scorpio, Taurus, Eridanus and the Southern Cross. The constellations include some unusal additions, including the Peacock, Toucan, and a lovely unicorn called Monoceros.

The corners of the chart are decorated with vignettes of the astronomical observatories at Greenwich, Copenhagen, Cassel, and Berlin.
