Denoting Marks of the Redhorn Panel and Their Astronomical Values
Each panel is shown separately. Both panels represent a 43° clockwise rotation of a stellar view for 15 August 1028 a. D. (OS). It was found that greater clarity was achieved by inverting the colors of the Panel, but keeping the stars in white.

Saturn answers to no mark on the Panel, but is included as a object of interest. The status of Rigel is also uncertain.
The lower panel, since it is darker, does not use an inverted color scheme.

Aldebaran was added purely for reference. Saturn falls at an interesting spot on this date, but rarely on any other. Many of these stars were probably not measured and fall into alignment by pure coincidence. The stars were aligned by the two eyes stars, 14 Orionis and HIP 17954. If the whole is rotated counterclockwise, the fawn's eye star will move from its eye, but τ Tauri and the tine stars will fall into better alignment. A good many measurements were made, and some error had crept into the process, perhaps from the transfer of data from the template (presumed hide drawing surface) to the wall.
The apparent magnitude of each of these stars can be tabulated.
