    I found this site:
    that may help you ... "Constellations.zip" seems to contain the list
    of segments between named stars in line_starnames.dat (traditional)
    or starnames_rey.dat (for the H.A.Rey outlines, which I like a lot).

    Subject: Constellations
    Does anyone know of a good on line source for maps of the
    Ideally , I'd like a line drawing showing each star in the tradition
    line figure with the star's id (greek letter or number). A plus would be
    common names (but not in place of id) and HR catalog number.
    Coordinates are not needed, I can get them else where.
    I've found decent maps of some constellations scattered over many sites
    but no good single source.  Most maps are too small to read, lack some
    data, or are incomplete in some way.
    It's probably too much to hope for (Christmas is in the offing) but if
    anyone has a list of the line segments making up the constellations, I'd
    like to have it. :-)
    TIA, Michael
