Caption

An astronomer with his astrolabe, an illustration from the Nuernberg Chronicles of the World, published in 1493. The astrolabe was a primitive type of instrument used, in the form shown here, to measure the altitudes of stars (their angular heights above the horizon). The altitude of a standard star could be used to determine the time of night.
