Well, it's not the most up to date Sky Map

The BA is enthusing over Sky-Map, a web based sky mapping program. But I like this page dedicated to Bode's 1782 Atlas "Vorstellung der Gestirne". Sure it's not up to date (the location of Uranus is way out), but boy it is gorgeous. Look at the Southern Plate, with the first of Le Callie's Southern Constellations. And how about the constellation of the Royal Scepter of Brandenburg? The don't make Atlas's like this anymore.
