If the dating on this astrolabe is correct (see below), then it belongs to the later period of Muhammad Khalil's activities. The decoration, by Muhammad Baqir Isfahani, has been very skilfully executed, but is not quite of the same standard as that of Muhammad Mahdi, whose astrolabes, in all likelihood, were the models for Muhammad Khalil's production.
