Celestial Globe from Ignace-Gaston Pardies’ Tables

paper globe

[diameter of the Celestial Globe: 25 cm]


Visit the David Rumsey Map Collection website to admire and download Pardies’ star and constellation maps. Another great website with a lot of information about Pardies’ masterpiece is Atlas Coelestis (sorry, mostly in Italian…).

If you have already downloaded the Globe project (before Dec. 3), but you are not satisfied by the final result because Pole holes are not well defined, download the Pole Caps for improving your model.
