Celestial globe gores. Astronomical details on the gores are the same as Matthaeus Greuter GLB0143. There is a labelled magnitude table to the left of Ursa Major. The brightness of the stars are indicated by a number. The Milky Way and the Small Magellanic Cloud are labelled, and the Large Magellanic Cloud is drawn but not labelled. The nova in Cassiopeia is labelled and several comets are noted, for example, above Sagittarius. Below Cetus there is a cartouche with a precession table.

A total of 24 stars and six star groups are named including Plaustrum, which is represented by an archer in a chariot drawn by horses. The 48 Ptolemaic constellations and four of the non-Ptolemaic constellations are drawn. Six of the southern constellations are drawn as well as those of Plancius. The constellations are drawn in the style of Blaeu's 680 mm celestial globe. The overall measurement is for each of the 24 half gores.
