Distant Suns Star Chart

  The above image is approximately the same field of view in Distant Suns as the images taken on Wed evening. The white lines mark the angles of Right Ascention corresponding to 0h at the top and 6h, 12h and 18h going clockwise. Part of the handle of the Little Dipper is also marked. The closest star on the handle is δ UMi (mag. 4.35)and the one just visible at the edge of the image is ε UMi. (mag. 4.21). All the stars visible in this star chart are greater than magnitude 7. To give a sense of scale ε UMi is about 8° from the pole.
