EDITORS COMMENTS
This stunning engraving from Reiner Ottens's Atlas Maior (1730) transports us back to the early 18th century, showcasing a part of a southern hemisphere star chart with intricate details. The Greenwich Observatory stands proudly on the left, symbolizing the epicenter of astronomical observations in England during that time. On the right, we see the Round Tower observatory in Copenhagen, a testament to Denmark's contribution to celestial mapping. Ottens collaborated with Johannes Honmann to create this masterpiece based on John Flamsteed's celestial chart of the southern hemisphere. Flamsteed's 'Atlas Coelestis' served as the foundation for this work, incorporating findings from various European observatories such as Hesse-Cassel and Berlin. The vibrant colors and meticulous engravings bring this historical piece to life, highlighting not only the beauty of astronomy but also the collaborative efforts of astronomers across Europe. As we gaze upon this image, we are reminded of humanity's endless fascination with the stars and our relentless pursuit of knowledge about the universe. This print is not just a visual delight but also a window into a bygone era when scientific exploration was at its peak. It serves as a reminder of how far we have come in understanding our place in the cosmos while honoring those who paved the way for modern astronomy.
