Constellations

(Wintergatan. Starmachine2000)

The Lemizh constellations are ultimately based on the ancient Greek/Babylonian ones, resulting in overlaps with our constellations. Many of the fainter ones, and the ones too far south to be visible from Mesopotamia, were named in Early New Lemizh times and are unrelated to our tradition.

The stars in each constellation are numbered, with the brightest stars (brighter than about 3.8 apparent magnitude, which corresponds to a Lemizh star brightness of 3) having mostly one-digit numbers, and stars visible to the naked eye under ideal conditions (magnitude ~6.1, Lemizh brightness zero) having at most two digits.

  Dìr dragonÌor.the thirteenth [star] in the DragonBeta Ursae Minoris (Kochab)
13-ill1 dragon-acc-sce2.
2ìr arrowùorn.the second [star] in the Arrow (tool noun)Gamma Sagittae
2-ill1 arrow-ins-partsce2.
A view of some northern constellations, depicting similarities and differences to our tradition

Designations for fainter stars have three and more digits, and those for nonstellar objects include a letter for the object type plus one or more digits, again depending on brightness.
