    Frank sent the attachment -
    "stonehenge.stars.markedup.jpg" (included again here) with the comment
    ""For what it's worth."
    And indeed, it's worth a good deal. I had been puzzling about how to create
    something like that, and Frank has kindly offered it up on a plate.
    I plan to email it to the Guardian, together with an attachment "northern
    sky view.gif", which superimposes my rough sketch of the Sonehenge picture
    on to a map of northern stars (from the almanac).
    Thanks to Frank, for filling in that picture; to Dave, whose identification
    of Vega, and other stars including Deneb, provided the key for unlocking
    the puzzle; and to Patrick, for identifying the sarsen stones.
    If anything comes of it, such as a further published correction, I will
    inform the list.
    contact George Huxtable, at  george{at}hux.me.uk
    or at +44 1865 820222 (from UK, 01865 820222)
    or at 1 Sandy Lane, Southmoor, Abingdon, Oxon OX13 5HX, UK.

    I meant to include a marked up copy of the image indicating the stars and
    constellations. For what it's worth...
