The difference comes from the number of stars shown on each of the three night sky poster sizes.
The A2 is twice as big as the A3 star map, and the A3 is twice as big as the A4. Due to A3 and A4 being smaller, it's harder to show the smaller stars on them. Therefore, the A2 - Large star map will have the highest accuracy with most stars shown as compared to Medium and Small posters.
All posters are printed on same quality paper using the same printers and going through the same strict quality assurance process! Go to our Star Map Builder to find the right poster size for you!
We use an astronomically verified algorithm to generate your unique star map. We use a location (the observer point) and a date to generate your star map. Our database is formed of hundreds of thousands of stars accurately positioned from the European Space Agency's database of stars. Rest assured, our team of astronomers took great care to make sure your poster is as accurate as possible!
We've worked hard and thoroughly tested our star map algorithm against a multitude of scenarios. We use an up-to-date database of stars from the European Space Station to make sure the stars positions are as accurate as possible. Our secret algorithm has been astronomically verified to make sure it's as accurate as possible. To get the most accurate poster with most stars on it, we suggest having a look at our A2 night sky poster. Please do keep in mind the free star map preview option only shows a fraction of the stars present on the version we ship to you.
The second part of creating the perfect star map is tweaking our printing process to make sure even the smallest of stars will be visible on the final product! We are confident you will be very happy with your order!
