Hello, I'm new to astronomy, and need some help. I'm an artist and I'm doing a comissioned painting for someone who would like their zodiac sign included in the painting. The constellation I need to paint is Aries, but I want to make the distance between the stars correct. For example, each 1/16 of an inch represents so many light years... etc. I'm sure this is listed on a star map somewhere, but I can't seem to find it. I'm sure part of the problem is that I don't know the proper terms for what I'm trying to find... If anyone could help me out with this I'd appreciate it!!!

Thanks!
