OULI Classic (2018)

Even though a more up-to-date and scientifically precise circular map of the universe exists, some people still favor the 2018 version. The 2018 version has a less noticeable redshift on the cosmic web, less warm and natural colors, and a colder and more elegant appearance. Which version do you prefer? We have included all historical versions of the map below for your reference.
