Constellations: The constellation the system is located in, or associated with (Solar System), is mid-raised in the metal background of the design. Stars that are part of the perceived pattern in the constellation are represented by diamonds, while background stars are circles.
Stars: The largest metal circle in each design is to scale with the screen printed planets.
Planets: The order the planets are printed are innermost (top) to outermost (bottom). The metal circles also represent the planets, to a more clear scale, though they are not in any particular order.

Wolf-1061 is named after Max Wolf, German astronomer who first cataloged the star. In 2015 the discovery of the exoplanets were announced, a process of analyzing 10 years of HARPS spectrograph observations. This system is a mere 14 light-years away and planets in the system are likely to all be rocky. The second planet from its star is in the Habitable Zone, and the third planet is a super-earth located just inside the zone.
