We developed this unique piece to celebrate the International Astronomical Year (2009).

The astrolabe reached the peak of its popularity in the 16th century. The Spanish astronomer and mathematician Juan de Rojas presented to the European public the Orthographic Projection (1550). This projection was successfully applied in a new type of astrolabe that offered remarkable advantages over its predecessors because it could be used in any latitude.

This instrument can be used at any latitude of the Northern Hemisphere.
