The images here are ones I have either done myself or had a hand in doing.  They may be either updated regularly or simply replaced with better ones as I learn more and finally get my head around this digital stuff.

 

Some of the images information is taken from Wikapedia and I have left the links included,  intact,   so you may follow them and obtain more information.

 

If you want to get a rough idea where some of these heavenly bodies are in respect to others,   then head over to  here  SKY SECTORS
