Sphere and stand
Celestial table globe. It forms a pair with the anonymous terrestrial globe, GLB0162. Astronomical details on the sphere show the Milky Way and the Magellanic Clouds, which are labelled. There is no magnitude table but the stars are represented by two different symbols. There are 48 Ptolemaic constellations, with some errors, and four of the non Ptolemaic constellations are drawn. Eight of the southern constellations are drawn, as well as most of those of Plancius and three of Hevelius. However, not all the southern constellations are labelled.
