Re: VMs: Star Magnitudes within Manuscript

I agree that the number of points on a star would be the best
way of showing its magnitude.

Are there any stars shown with anything other than 6 or 7 points?

In the list I gave of just one VMS cosmo page, there were a few 8 pointed stars. IIRC, earlier in the year I also catalogued all the stars in the starred paragraph section, and in the zodiac section.

It may well be that there is a demonstrable one-to-one correspondence between the number of points on a star in the zodiac section and the corresponding star traditionally ruling that degree. This might be a good way of definitively working out the correct zodiac nymph sequence! :-)
