1690 Hevelius' star atlas

I love those old star atlases such as the Firmamentum Sobiescianum sive Uranographia by astronomer Johannes Hevelius, published in 1690. It won't help you find your way around the night sky but it sure is beautiful. You can view all the images from the star atlas Uranographia here.
