In 1860 the french astronomer and director of the Observatoire de Paris, Ernest Mouchez, initiated a project to photographically document the stars of the night sky to create a map of the stars. 20 observatories worldwide collaborated. Finally, after 70 years, the last observatory, the Armagh Observatory, discontinued the effort. The project was never finalized, there are too many stars in the sky.
