About

Our Antique Planisferic Astrolabe is a classical masterpiece. This astronomical masterpiece perfectly matches antique interiors specially coupled with our other antique scientific instruments.

Astrolabe

"An astrolabe is an elaborate inclinometer, historically used by astronomers and navigators to measure the inclined position in the sky of a celestial body, day or night. It can thus be used to identify stars or planets, to determine local latitude given local time (and vice versa), to survey, or to triangulate. It was used in classical antiquity, the Islamic Golden Age, the European Middle Ages, and the Renaissance for all these purposes.

The astrolabe is effective for determining latitude on land or calm seas, although it is less reliable on the heaving deck of a ship in rough seas. The mariner's astrolabe was developed to solve that problem.

Several types of astrolabes have been made. By far the most popular type is the planispheric astrolabe, on which the celestial sphere is projected onto the plane of the equator."
