Inscription on meridian ring
Celestial clockwork globe. Astronomical details on the sphere show that only the most important stars are indicated. There is no magnitude table but the stars are represented by three different symbols. The Milky Way is drawn (dotted) but not labelled. The Magellanic Clouds are labelled. A total of eleven stars and four star groups are named. The 48 Ptolemaic constellations and four of the non-Ptolemaic constellations are drawn.
