Want to do it yourself? Black paper and white paper. Cut triangles out of white paper and lay them out on black paper. Try to be big, the bigger the better. Then shoot.

I suggest using photo-quality paper (matte, not glossy), not just run-of-the-mill printer paper. I think you'll find the image will bleed less, remain sharper and will take more abuse.
I got my from Filmtools.com. It's the one from Century Optics. Yes, you have to pay for it. But, much better than the one you can print out (IMO!)

I printed out one of these and I have it attached to the back of my grey card for easy access.
If you can get your hands on the great SharpMax or other portable collimator, they work very well and a lot quicker to use and easier to back-focus.

This is my favorite star chart. I used it on RED a couple times this year and it actually resolves at such a high resolution that it made the entire LCD shear (on build 16).
Depending on the lens, you can actually get four stars out of this chart instead of just one.
I have a super-high-resolution version if you need it (5075x4725). Email me for a copy.
