additions[edit]

I came to this article to find out how many degrees the star chart "shifts" each day. The answer is about one degree a day counterclockwise. This needs to be added to the article. It should also be noted that the sky only appears to shift because of Earth's movement around the Sun. It's an APPARENT shift not an actual shift. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dustynyfeathers (talkcontribs) 13:31, 25 April 2012 (UTC)

This article says nothing about more modern solutions like the various AR star chart apps which are available on modern phones, tablets and desktop/laptop computers. 86.162.112.253 (talk) 12:58, 27 August 2012 (UTC)

links[edit]

Hi. Here's another star chart I found. Should it be added? The site also has other astronomical simulators. It gives you a star map for a given city. Thanks. AstroHurricane001(Talk+Contribs+Ubx) 20:46, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

Projections[edit]

The article should contain, or link to, something about the projections used in mapping the spherical heavens onto a plane surface. But what? 94.30.84.71 (talk) 11:45, 1 February 2011 (UTC)

Oldest star chart[edit]

Does the Nebra sky disc count as a star chart? If so, it would possibly register as one of the oldest ones. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 193.167.170.47 (talk) 14:52, 5 August 2013 (UTC)
