The index mirror can be fully adjusted using three brass screws.
A built-in magnifier can be swung into position to assist in reading the German Silver vernier scale.
There is a solid hardwood handle on the back of the sextant.

The joinery on the case are all "Box" or "Finger" joints.
Custom brass plaques are available for the outside of the case,
inside the lid, or both.
