The binnacle houses the main magnetic compass on a ship which is mounted in gimbals to keep it level while the vessel rocks with the motion of the water. Sometimes there was an oil lamp or, later, an electrical light source, mounted under the compass. A brass hood sits atop the compass and has a viewing port thorugh which you can see the direction. The green and red balls on either side slide to adjust the compass to compensate for the magnetic skew of the iron on the ship.
