 Official FAQ

 Other Rules clarifications
Astrolabe is a powerful and versatile card, and buying at least one of them is beneficial in a wide range of circumstances. It is at the same price point as Silver and offers the same total buying power, but spread over two turns, and it contributes buying power on the second turn without requiring a card to be played. On top of this, it gives +1 Buy on both turns. It is thus a reliable and powerful source of +Buy, and where +Buy is beneficial, it is much more valuable than a Silver. Furthermore, because it is not an action, there is no risk of drawing it dead, so it can be added to decks without +Actions cards, such as in a Terminal Draw Big Money strategy, to offer +Buy that is usually not available in these decks.
In an engine, it is often more desireable than terminal actions providing +Buy. By staying in play two turns but only taking up a space in the hand on one turn, it slightly reduces the chance that the engine will fail to start.
Pendant makes Astrolabe particularly valuable, as Astrolabe being in play increases the value of Pendant, and the presence of Pendant in a deck with other Alt-treasure often reaches high values that benefit from +Buy.
