In Which I Brag About a Christmas Present

It may be 3 weeks after x-mas, but bragging about astronomically-themed gifts is still in season. There is nothing quite like a 150-year-old engraving to help you enjoy antiquated notions of clusters, nebulae, and comets. Thanks girlfriend!

Update: I forgot the best panel. Here it is, I think it speaks for itself.

Fig. 56 is definitely not a crowd-pleaser. I forgot to put up a close-up of 72 though, which more than makes up for it.

I "suppose" if I hit the hyperspace button I'll appear in a random new place on the...universe.

Yup. And it would be 1856, like in the picture.
