Zachary, Michael A.


Part 1 of 2; Understanding the Astrolabe. With the astrolabe out of fashion for two centuries, why study it now? Well, aside from the historical value, there has never been another instrument that can match the astrolabe for teaching fundamental astronomical concepts in such a hands-on intuitive way. But astronomical knowledge is just the beginning. The astrolabe opens the door to an understanding of countless scientific and mathematical concepts.


Contents: What is an Astrolabe?; Why study the Astrolabe now?; Construction; Using the Astrolabe; A brief History of Time (Keeping); Descriptions of my Astrolabes; Glossary; Endnotes; Bibliography; Web Resources.
