Planisphaerium Caeleste : G. C. Eimmart / J. B. Homann

click here to view a large version in a separate window

Georg Christoph Eimmart's celestial hemispheres are surrounded by six diagrams showing the Tychonic model of the planetary system, the Ptolemaic model, the Copernican system, the relation between the moon and the tides, the annual illumination of the earth by the sun and the monthly illumination of moon. The central hemispheres include a wealth of detail and a number of non-Ptolemaic constellations. This example is the second state of the map with the imprint "prostat in Officina Homanniana". A good strong impression of this decorative and striking image.
