The main objective of the freestarcharts website is to provide quality star charts for use by amateur astronomers under a "Creative Commons License". What that means is you are basically free to download, use and/or distribute this work for non-commercial purposes with appropriate attribution. A simple credit of "" is all that's required as attribution. You can also create and distribute derived works if they follow the same license.

The project is administered by Andy Peterson, a veteran amateur astronomer with 40 years of observational experience who's aim is to continue the work long term as well as enhancing - where required - the content already published.
