The astrolabe is an elaborate inclinometer, historically used by astronomers, navigators and astrologers. This one resides in Perot Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas, Texas. Every hardcore steampunk fan should have an astrolabe in his living room. When visitors ask what it is, they should simply sigh deeply in response while twirling the ends of their handlebar mustaches.
