How to Draw a Сonstellation Сhart

Astronomic maps are used to locate stars, planets and other objects in the sky for a certain date, time and observing location. ConceptDraw Astronomy solution can be used as a tool for creating astronomy maps, charts and illustrations that contains astronomy symbols of constellations, galaxies, stars and planets. It allows you to draw the map of any constellation quickly and easily using the special templates and vector stencils libraries. Read more
The vector stencils library "Northern constellations" contains 6 star constellation maps for drawing astronomical diagrams.
"There are no markings on the night sky, though there exist many sky maps to aid stargazers in identifying constellations and other celestial objects. Constellations are prominent because their stars tend to be brighter than other nearby stars in the sky. Different cultures have created different groupings of constellations based on differing interpretations of the more-or-less random patterns of dots in the sky. Constellations were identified without regard to distance to each star, but instead as if they were all dots on a dome.
Orion is among the most prominent and recognizable constellations. The Big Dipper (which has a wide variety of other names) is helpful for navigation in the northern hemisphere because it points to Polaris, the north star.
The pole stars are special because they are approximately in line with the Earth's axis of rotation so they appear to stay in one place while the other stars rotate around them through the course of a night (or a year)." [Night sky. Wikipedia]

The vector stencils library "Southern constellations" contains 22 star constellations maps for drawing astronomical diagrams.
"In modern astronomy, a constellation is an internationally defined area of the celestial sphere. These areas are grouped around asterisms (which themselves are generally referred to in non-technical language as "constellations"), which are patterns formed by prominent stars within apparent proximity to one another on Earth's night sky.
There are also numerous historical constellations not recognized by the IAU or constellations recognized in regional traditions of astronomy or astrology, such as Chinese, Hindu and Australian Aboriginal." [Constellation. Wikipedia]
