Device with Unknown Purpose - Astrolabe, orrery, gyroscope... many of us have heard the words. Can you work them, or explain them? This device, this does something different. I knew what it was, just a moment ago, hold on...
The completed tellurian, orrery and subsidiary dial banks. This is the "crown" to Pouvillon's creation and contains 563 parts.

An armillary sphere (variations are known as spherical astrolabe, armilla, or armil) is a model of objects in the sky (in the celestial sphere), consisting of a spherical framework of rings, centred on Earth, that represent lines of celestial longitude and latitude and other astronomically important features such as the ecliptic. As such, it differs from a celestial globe, which is a smooth sphere whose principal purpose is to map the constellations.
SHADOW OF NIGHT real-time reading, 8 April 1591 (Chapter 30): "Master Habermel stopped by. Your compendium is on the table." You may recognize parts of Diana's compendium in the images below. The first image was not by Habermel, but another period instrument maker named Johann Anton Linden, and it provided me with the general structure of Diana's compendium, onto which I projected Habermel's style. ` Deborah HArkness facebook
