Tychonic planisphere. This is plate 6 from the 1708 edition of the star atlas 'Harmonica Macrocosmica' by the Dutch-German mathematician and cosmographer Andreas Cellarius (1596-1665). It shows the geocentric worldview of Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe (1546-1601, lower right). The five known planets orbit the Sun (upper centre), and the Moon and Sun orbit the Earth (centre). Zodiacal signs are on the rim, and astronomers and putti in the border. Macrocosmica', first published in 1660, had 30 colour plates with Latin text. This edition was published in Amsterdam by Petrus Schenk and Gerard Valk.
