SPHEROSCOPE Del Pino

The SPHEROSCOPE Del Pino, done in harmony with modern ephemerides, is essentially a coordinate transformer that allows to read the local hourly or equatorial coordinates corresponding to the altazimuth, and conversely, of a given star; it can therefore solve all problems of celestial navigation, connected with the transformation of coordinates.

The tool is part of the collection of the Hydrographic Institute of the Navy and is accompanied by the publication of Mario Bini Instructions for use of the spheroscope Del Pino model 1955 (Genoa, IIM, 1955).
