From the Greek “star searcher” this instrument was introduced in Europe by the Arabs. It became a vital tool for astrologers, astronomers and surveyors. Among other calculations one can establish the height of the planets, the stars and  the Sun, determine latitude and time, measure heights, calculate distances and astrological implications.

After years of study and research Dr. L.H.V. has developed this Astrolabe based in classics. Its precision and aesthetics makes of this instrument, made for 40.4º Latitude (that's not surprisingly Madrid's latitude), a unique piece.

Height: 245mm (9.65 inches)
Astrolabe diameter: 200mm (7.87 inches)
Thickness: 7.2mm (0.28 inches)
Weight: 2.2 kg
