Sphere and box
Celestial navigational globe. Astronomical details on the sphere show stars represented by dots of various sizes and marked by their Bayer notation. A magnitude table is lacking. The constellations are represented by contour areas and some of the stars are connected by lines. A total of 19 stars and one star group are named. There are areas with names of the 48 Ptolemaic constellations and two non-Ptolemaic constellations. Nine of the southern constellations of Plancius are represented, as are two of Hevelius and three of Lacaille.
