Fit for an emperor

An unsually large astrolabe by Erasmus Habermel, who worked in Prague at the court of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II. Despite its size the features are largely standard. For example the sets of curved lines in the lower part of the plate represent unequal hours (Roman numerals) and the astrological houses (Arabic numerals).
