Description

An armillary has a framework of rings, with the Earth or Sun in the centre, representing important astronomical features, the paths of the stars, together with lines of longitude and latitude.

First used by Greek astromoners, the Chilstone Brass Ecliptic Armillary is beautifully crafted and is accurate for use in the UK (overseas buyers must provide their GPS position).

The bands of the Solstice, the Tropics, the Equinox, and the Equator are featured and the armillary also has the signs of the zodiac. The gnomon that should point to the North Star has at its centre an orb to mark the changing seasons.

As an option, the armillary can be engraved with a personal inscription or motto (this will attract an extra charge).
