Sphere and stand
Celestial table globe. Astronomical details on the sphere show a table with text below Cetus. To the right of this there is a labelled magnitude table, and to the left there is a labelled table for precession. The Megallanic Clouds are labelled and the Milky Way is drawn. In total, 27 stars are named, others are incomplete and there is one star group. The 48 Ptolemaic constellations are drawn with names in Latin, Greek, transliterated Arabic and occasionally transliterated Hebrew. Four of the non-Ptolemaic constellations are drawn, as well as the 12 southern constellations of Plancius.
