Celestial table globe. It forms a pair with the terrestrial globe, van Langren GLB0098. Astronomical details on the sphere include a labelled magnitude table in front of Ursa Major. The Milky Way is labelled. The Magellanic Clouds are drawn but not labelled. There is data on the astrological associations of the constellations, and 72 stars and eight star groups are named. The 48 Ptolemaic constellations and four of the non-Ptolemaic constellations are drawn. The origin of the data for two of the non-Ptolemaic constellations are explained in a text at the South Pole.
