Definitions and Meaning of astrolabe in English

astrolabe noun

  1. an early form of sextant.


An astrolabe is an ancient astronomical instrument that was a handheld model of the universe. Its various functions also make it an elaborate inclinometer and an analog calculation device capable of working out several kinds of problems in astronomy. In its simplest form it is a metal disc with a pattern of wires, cutouts, and perforations that allows a user to calculate astronomical positions precisely. Historically used by astronomers, it is able to measure the altitude above the horizon of a celestial body, day or night; it can be used to identify stars or planets, to determine local latitude given local time, to survey, or to triangulate. It was used in classical antiquity, the Islamic Golden Age, the European Middle Ages and the Age of Discovery for all these purposes.

तारेक्ष या तारक्षवेधयंत्र का पर्यायवाची अंग्रेजी शब्द ऐस्ट्रोलैब (Astrolabe) तथा संस्कृत शब्द 'यंत्रराज' है। यह एक प्राचीन वेधयंत्र है, जिससे यह नक्षत्रों के उन्नतांश ज्ञात करके समय तथा अक्षांश जाने जाते थे। संभवत: इसका आविष्कार परगा के यूनानी ज्योतिषी ऐपोलोनियस अथवा हिपार्कस ने किया था। अरब के ज्योतिषियों ने इस यंत्र में बहुत सुधार किए। यूरोप में ईसा की 15वीं शताब्दी के अंत से लेकर 18वीं शताब्दी के मध्य तक समुद्र यात्रियों में यह यंत्र बहुत प्रचलित था। भारत के प्रसिद्ध ज्योतिषी राजा जयसिंह को यह यंत्र बहुत प्रिय था। जयपुर में दो तारेक्ष यंत्र विद्यमान हैं, जिनके अंक तथा अक्षर नागरी लिपि के हैं।
