"Mang's Drehbare Sternkarte" c1908

This is the star finder by Adolf Mang that was made sometime around 1908 according to Peter Grimwood's "Card Planispheres - A Collectors Guide". This planisphere has Sun and Moon pointers, with sliding discs for the Sun and Moon, that were once blue steel but the bluing is now gone. There is a break in the maroon ring near the top and the planisphere is bowed.
