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.
