My inspiration for my Star Guides series comes from this astrolabe, purchased from www.seretandsons.com, during one of our yearly trips to Santa Fe. Much like an Indiana Jones artifact, it is etched brass, with 5 interchangable inner sky maps filled with Arabic writing, symbols, arrows, latitude/longitude, and compass segments. For one who can read the maps, they become guides on the journey.
