The Dunhuang Chinese star map, one of the oldest known star charts.
William Herschel’s map of the Milky Way, constructed by him looking through a telescope and his sister Caroline dutifully taking notes and marking the stars as he read off locations. This is the first proposition of the shape of our own galaxy, the Milky Way.
