    Re: User's guide to Artline globes' Starship Earth II globe

    Many thanks, Luc!  This was helpful.  I found a link to a group exercise for a umd astronomy class that explained how to use the globe!  It made explicit the one step I wasn't seeing.  I would still like to see a copy of the original booklet that came with it.  I haven't found that yet.

    Best regards,
    Patrick

    I have come into possession of a a three-dimensional star atlas that appears to be identical to the Starship Earth globe listed in the Celestaire catalog (p.23).   Mine lacks the instruction book mentioned in the catalog and, I am embarrassed to say, I have not been able to intuit exactly how to use the globe.  Does anyone have this booklet?  If so, could you post a scan of it on nav-list?  Failing this, perhaps someone could tell me how to orient the parts and how I am supposed to look at it.

    Thanks for your help.

    Best regards,
    Patrick
