ancient Islamic star charts?

I need if find pictures for a painting that I am planning on doing. The problem that I have is when I am looking it up on google, it gives me the same picture over and over and tells me that the same star chart came from 8 significantly different areas.

I need them to be from dependable sources.

Thanks

    Islam can't change the star charts. If you are looking for Islamic names of each star, then you need to read books. My source is Burnham's Celestial Handbook. Most names in modern Astronomy are of Arab origin. They normally mean things like 'wing', 'foot', 'left hand', 'mouth', 'dove', 'lion' etc in Arabic.
