Fine and complete Celestial Globe, Star Finder – Hughes, London, 1920
Making position by observation of stars is done at twilight. With partly cloudy skies it can be difficult to find the right stars. This star globe helps with it. In the lid of the box there is a paper label with instructions for use.
The wooden deck box of mahogany is brass-hinged and dovetailed. On the front two clasps for locking with a safety device against unforeseen opening.
The globe is mounted in a brass meridian circle. The brass horizon circle carries a azimuth ring with four vertical quadrants and complete with three cursors.
