The Zinc ASTROLABE WITH COLUMN PEDESTAL is a steel reproduction of an elaborate inclinometer. Finished in a zinc bath in Hungary, this Astrolabe sculpture has a lightly-weathered appearance that delivers a touch of vintage inspiration to your outdoor area. Historically used by astronomers and navigators to measure the altitude above the horizon of a celestial body, day or night. It can be used to identify stars or planets, to determine local latitude given local time, to survey, or to triangulate. Zinc-coated steel construction
