You will also find other rewards while swimming in the Black Lake.

Starting The Quest
“The Lost Astrolabe” quest is unlocked after finishing the main quest called “Tomes and Tribulations,” You also need to be at least Level7. Once you’ve filled in the necessary criteria, you can take the “The Lost Astrolabe” quest from the quest-giver NPC named Grace Pinch-Smedley. She is a student found on the wooden dock beside the BlackLake in the LowerHogsfield area.
In the exposition, Grace Pinch-Smedley tells you about her family’s astrolabe and how her grandfather lost it in the Black Lake. Her father forbids her from diving into the Black Lake, and she needs your help to recover the astrolabe.
To complete this quest, you’ll need to swim in the BlackLake and find Grace’s Astrolabe Hogwarts Legacy. While completing this quest, you can find a few other items in the Black Lake.
Completing this quest will give you different rewards depending on your chosen options. There will be three options at the end, with other prizes for each option. We’ll talk about them in more detail later on.
This quest is quite simple. All you need to do is, swim through the Black Lake to the spot of Pinch-Smedley’s Family Astrolabe. She tells you it’s about a furlong from the docks, which is about 200 meters. You need to swim northeast from your starting position to find the astrolabe. Finding it is pretty easy since its location is marked on your map.
While swimming through the lake, you may encounter Dugboats. You can defeat these enemies by swimming to a shallow water region to use your spells, as you cannot use the bits while swimming. Once you glide through the lake, you’ll find different white circular spots where you can dive.
Each dive spot has different rewards, and there are five spots.

One of these spots contains the Pinch-Smedley Family Astrolabe. Once you acquire it, swim back to Grace to complete the quest.
Upon returning to Grace, she’ll ask if you have retrieved her family astrolabe, and you’ll be prompted with three choices.
I did. Here you are: If you return the astrolabe to Grace, you’ll receive the standard rewards of 180 XP and a mermaid mask.
I did. And it’s yours – for a price: If you ask for compensation, she’ll reward you with 20 currency, and you’ll also get a small amount of XP and a mermaid mask.
I did. And I’m keeping it: If you choose to stay the astrolabe for yourself, Grace will be annoyed, but you’ll be able to keep her family astrolabe and 45 XP, and the mermaid mask.
