This work was unfinished at Gemma Frisius' death in 1555 and was completed by his son Cornelius and published in the following year. Gemma had founded a workshop which produced globes and mathematical instruments and was noted for his skills as an instrument-maker by Tycho Brahe, among others. Here he describes the construction and use of an astrolabe of his own devising and includes sections on eclipses and their observation, sundials and horoscopes.
