I put a twist on that above map. Actually, two twists.  :P

It doesn't show some of the outlying links as the base image (http://www.atlasoftheuniverse.com/20lys.html) only extends out 20 light-years and quite a few of my known systems are beyond that distance.

Because of this guy: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Max_Wolf

And you have this guy to thank for thousands of Gliese, GJ, and NN stars: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wilhelm_Gliese
