Using the Orrery Viewer
The Orrery Viewer is a tool which can be used to remotely observe the great orrery of Moonglow's Observatory. It appears in Ultima VII.

Description[edit]

The viewer was constructed by the Observatory administrator, Brion out of an assortment of crystals - the last of which was furnished by the Avatar after they purchased it from the peddler Addom. Once completed, Brion gave the device to the hero of legend, allowing them to track the movement of the planets, as the impending astronomical alignment drew closer.[1] [2]

Trivia[edit]

  • In the SNES Port of Ultima VII, the orrery viewer is replaced with a telescope, which can only be used to view the alignment of the planets at night.
