Whether you’re at the bach, the beach, or out in the bush, navigate your way through the southern skies using your very own planisphere!
Perfect for use between 30° and 60° South, simply rotate the inner disk to line up the date and time to reveal the skies overhead in the viewing window! Made out of water-resistant plastic and secured with a stainless steel rivet and eyelets, it is a hardy traveler and perfect for stargazing on those camping trips away – both in the bush and the backyard.
The design includes several handy features, including:
- a list of constellation abbreviations on the back for reference,
- different sized markings for different magnitudes of stars, and
- high-contrast constellations for easy-viewing at night.
Viewing your planisphere using a red light is recommended to allow for minimal disturbance to your eyes during stargazing. Don’t have one? Check out our Red LED Flashlight – the perfect light source for a night out under the stars!
Exclusive to Museums Wellington, this Space Place branded planisphere is part of our custom range of products.
