Fly Me to the Moon: Hinkes Collection Highlights
The Atlas Coelestis is a star atlas published posthumously in 1729, based on observations made by the First Astronomer Royal of the United Kingdom, John Flamsteed.

The Atlas –- the largest that ever had been published and the first comprehensive telescopic star catalogue and companion celestial atlas –- contains 26 maps of the major constellations visible from Greenwich, England, with drawings made in the Rococo style by James Thornhill. It also presents two planispheres designed by Abraham Sharp.
