Here’s an example of the spherical astrolabe (15th C.).
One point which distinguishes Star Map from the astrolabe is that in both cases, astrolabes were not meant for direct viewing. In other words, one could not do real time work. It would require measurement, enscribing, and a duration of labor, etc.
Worth mentioning, the spherical astrolabe did not have a viewing instrument, like the planispheric versions did. This made the planispheric require less work and fewer hours of it in order to chart information.

which fucking fedora wearing friendzoned nerd made this thing

yeah but notice that the seal’s intent is to eat those fish and the shark offers a mutually beneficial relationship for them
in which a dudebro unintentionally makes a really accurate analogy for the reason that they’re single forever

That’s a whale shark. They’re docile and in no way threatening to people or those fish depicted. Seals, by contrast, will attack people, possibly out of a frustrated sense of entitlement combined with poor socialization skills.

Well that backfired spectacularly.
