8" navigation solid brass sextant with leather case
Here is a great antiquated brand new made of high quality solid brass sextant. A semi- precision instrument in a real leather carrying case. Sextant has all of the working parts of a more expensive real instrument with mirrors and precision scale to take fairly accurate global readings. This classy sextant measures 8" & has a gear-driven adjustment of the elevation angle, and a built-in powerful magnifier that can be swung into position to assist in reading the venire scale. The telescope can be extended to focus and produces a clear and bright magnified image. There are four dark swing-arm filters. While this sextant is fully functional, it is not calibrated nor intended for navigation. This sextant is available in both a beautiful polished brass finish, as well as an antique patina. Either version comes complete with a heavy 100% leather case & made of high quality brass.
