This is a two-part publication--a kit for making a cardboard astrolabe and a booklet giving instruction for assembly and use of this instrument, as well as a brief history of the astrolabe. What makes this astrolabe particularly useful is that it has been computed for modern star positions, so that once it is assembled, it is possible to use it for todays night sky. In fact, it is used in several college courses to teach how an astrolabe functions.

Softcover plus kit (assembly required) 22 pages.
