The Stellarota is a 19th century tool used for finding the placement of the stars, sun, and planets on any given day. The Stellarota portrays the sky, with all the constellations and planets visible in the northern hemisphere. The wire circle on top of the picture is used as a "wire Horizon" which one aligns with the picture of the sky. The picture can be turned in the frame using a knob on the back of the device. This particular Stellarota was projected and drawn in 1828 by C.M. Doolittle and S.B Munson, with the engraving done by N & S. S. Jocelyn. The device was made for A. Goodyear & Sons. The Stellarota was invented by Reverend Amos Pettengill.
