The map illustrates the various magnitudes of various celestial bodies and stars.

The Harmonia Macrocosmica of Andreas Celarius is widely regarded as the most beautiful and finely executed celestial atlas ever published.  The atlas appeared in two early editions of 1660 and 1661, and was also intended as part of Jansson's Atlas Maior.  Schenk & Valk re-issued the atlas in 1708, using the original Cellarius plates, without alteration, except for the addition of their names in the title cartouche.
