Star Chart created with PixInsight

Description

Just for fun. A star chart showing all the Sharpless Nebulae, Barnard Dark Object, VdB Reflection Nebulae and ARP Galaxy Catalogs. The ARP catalog was added because it is small.

I used PixInsight and the Catalog Star Generator script using a Zenithal equal area projection. And then the Image Annotation script with the above catalogs selected along with the NamedStars catalog.

The chart covers stars to a 6.5 magnitude along with constellation borders and lines. The original image is 12000x12000 but even as a Jpeg the file size is very large, 44Mb. So I reduced it to 6000x6000 which is still good enough to read the labels on most items.
