Celestial table globe. Astronomical details on the sphere include a labelled magnitude table, inside a cartouche. The Milky Way and the Magellanic Clouds are labelled. Below the cartouche is an address to the reader on precession. A total of 26 stars and two star groups are named. The 48 Ptolemaic constellations and four of the non-Ptolemaic constellations are drawn. In addition, there are three of the southern constellations, as well as those of Plancius and all those of Hevelius. The erroneous star name of Acharnar also occurs on the 310 mm globe by Valk, numbered GLB0126. This error confirms an earlier opinion put forward that Eimmart used a pair of Valk globes as one of his sources.
