The Scouts Brass Sextant is a beautiful full-scale reproduction of a functional sextant. This tool remains a practical back-up for any navigator of a ship, given its ability to function without electricity. This sextant has a slow motion control to allow fine adjustment of the elevation angle. A built-in magnifier can be swung into position to assist in reading the German Silver vernier scale, and there are six swing-arm filters. These models are perfect for the collector or the beginner interested in learning celestial navigation. A beautiful handcrafted hardwood storage and display box comes with this solid brass sextant. The case is made out of a high quality smooth finish hardwood. The box has one clasp and a brass filling of an anchor with rope embedded in the top of the box.
