Celestial Mapping and the Amateur Astronomer

Discover how the history of celestial cartography has evolved into several pathways that have relevance for today’s amateur astronomer. Dr. Nick Kanas will trace the history of ancient star mapping traditions, discuss the beautiful images of constellations pictured in early atlases, and explain how the development and use of the telescope influenced mapping, along with other significant developments that many amateur astronomers take for granted.
