Hemisferium Beringer's Quadrant

Hemisferium

This Hemispherium Astrolabe called Beringer's Quadrant is a beautiful portable cube sundial based on the work of 18th century scientist David Beringer of Nuremberg Germany. This model is a reproduction of a mobile cubic quadrant that dates back to 1736. It is made up of an articulated arm, which allows us to incline the cube in a North-South direction, and a plumb line on the eastern side that moves along a graduated scale and can be used to adapt the instrument to the latitude of the measure.
 
This instrument is crafted of wood and brass with cotton plumb lines and articulated stem with compass in the base.
