    This is a 'new' astrolabe designed by Dr Luis Hidalgo in the classical style. It is designed for a latitude of 50.5 degrees so can be used successfully throughout the British Isles and similar latitudes. The aim of the design was to produce an astrolabe suitable for teaching and learning its many applications.

    Made from solid metal with an antique brass finish it is approximately 10cm in diameter. This reproduction was made as faithful as possible to the original but, at the same time, updated and furnished with certain essential elements that make it useful in present times.
