Over 350 images with detailed instructor’s notes!
This CD-ROM features the constellations in the night sky in
three different formats.
Mythological/Geometric series: This set of 47 constellations
shows the constellation as a geometric star pattern, a mythological
figure, and then with the mythological figure superimposed over
the geometric pattern.
Constellations for Kids series: Uses the same format as above,
but with artwork appropriate for a younger audience. It includes
42 constellation figures.
Ancient Constellations series: This series is patterned after the
plates illustrated by Johann Hevelius in “Uranografia” (1690) and
Sir John Flamsteed in “Atlas Coelestis”(1753). This set of over 50
constellations shows the ancient constellation illustration superimposed
over the star pattern.
Star Maps series: This series aids in the understanding of the
changes that occur in the night sky. The use of stars as pointers
is shown and the use of constellations to map the night sky is
illustrated in detail.
The CD-ROM contains over 350 images that are suitable for either
digital (LCD) projection or viewing on a computer monitor screen.
The file formats are 300 dpi RGB TIFF and JPEG files. The
image size of these files is 7.5 x 10 inches, suitable for insertion in a
Powerpoint presentation and ideal for full page output. User’s notes
are presented in PDF format in a clear manner, with a thumbnail of
each image displayed together with the notes for that image.
