    Russian celestial star globe
    From: Markku Kalima

    Hi there!

    I bought this kind of star globe and now interested how to use it, and its history. I have no real world need for it but was more like an extra when buying my russian made sextant. They are both imported from Estonia to Finland some 20 years ago. Its quite nice object and it would be nice to know how to use it in star finding.

    The star names in the globe are written in latin alphabets and the compass points in the arc around the globe are (N, W, S, O) where O (ost/east) refers to german language. This might be done to East German Markets?

    Please tell me what you know about these globes. :)
