Sphere and stand
Celestial table globe. Astronomical details on the sphere show a magnitude table but the brightness is indicated by four different symbols. For some - but not all of the stars - the number of the magnitude is engraved. The Milky Way is labelled. There are no star names but two star groups are indicated. The 48 Ptolemaic constellations are drawn and the names of some of these are outlined by a band. The names of the Great Bear are similarly outlined. Around the South Pole, there is another band encircling a constellation in the shape of a cross which is labelled.
