The idea of a "star finder" is a noble one, and we have many successful options ranging from traditional planispheres to the neat little charts in the Air Almanac to phone apps like Google Skymap (or whatever they call it now). The problem with the H.O. 2102-D is that it is an abomination, the cunning and rude work of Satan himself, a seductive spell cast by the Hydrographic Office that lures navigation enthusiasts into the dark hell of the shadow arts. No really, it is! And I can prove it. See below.
PS: rude work... See what I did there?? :)
