Paper Abstract

Traditional star charts have several major problems that prevent them from reaching their full potential as educational tools. These include, most notably, opacity and the parallax problem,the solutions of which would make possible a more useful optical device that would permit the viewing of both the real stars and a projected image of the stars at infinity, with instructive labels, simultaneously and superimposed. A holographic star chart is such a device. We pursued two different approaches to this concept.
