All Sky Image - E/W Flipped (Latest)

The following plot is rotated and flipped E/W to show a view that complements the typical view one has standing in the observatory next to the Telescope and looking south in the sky with east on the left and west on the right.  It's a hypothetical view as if one was looking down on the sky from above.  Whilst constellations appear mirrored the rotation of stars and moon in the the image are consistent with the direction we actually experience.
