A powerful magnifier can be swung into position to assist in reading the vernier scale. The sextant's telescope has polished glass lenses and produces a sharp magnified image. The index mirror has three recessed adjustments. There are six tinted swing-arm filters with heavy brass filter mounts. On the back of the sextant is a hardwood handle with a thick brass plaque engraved "Stanley London 1920" and the unique serial number.

The hardwood case can be fitted with a custom engraved brass plaque either on the outside of the case, on the inside lid, or both.
