[1] Maslikov S. Large wooden astrolabe from the state hermitage museum // Bulletin of the Scientific Instrument Society. — 2017. — no. 133 (June). — P. 2–12. Most planispheric astrolabes known to have survived to modern times were made of brass. Sometimes most valuable instruments have silver inlay. At the same time, in the 16th century European astrolabist Georg Hartman when the demand for astrolabes began to exceed the capacity of his workshop turned to plywood and solid wood and used those extensively. Wooden astrolabes were short-lived and very few of them have survived to our time. A much less known fact is that Persian makers also used wood to make their instruments. For instance, Greenwich Royal Museum displays an astrolabe IC 1047 made of wood in the XIX century. The author of its description writes “No wooden astrolabe or quadrant are known from Iran…”. That is why finding of a well-preserved record-large astrolabe made of wood three hundred years ago in 1720, and in all probability manufactured in Persia became a real discovery or perhaps a rediscovery.
