Full Description:
The 8-inch (20 cm) standard-sized antique reproduction sextant has six filters, a scale magnifier, and a slow-motion control with vernier readout.
The sextant measures 10 1/2 inches (26.7 cm) tall, 10 3/8 inches (26.4 cm) wide, 4 3/4 inches (12.1 cm) deep, and weighs 5 pounds (2.27 kg).
Any of the sextant's six filters can be swung into position and a powerful magnifier can be moved to assist in reading the vernier scale.  The back of the sextant has a large hardwood handle with a brass plate.  Each plate is engraved "Stanley London 1920" and a serial number.

The angle on the vernier scale is set to zero degrees and the index mirror is adjusted so that the images from both optical paths as viewed through the telescope, align to produce one image.  The sextant's telescope produces a bright and clear image and the index mirror can be adjusted using two knurled brass screws.  The sextant is beautifully made of solid brass with a German Silver scale, and is fully functional, but not intended for navigation.

The sextant comes complete with a beautiful hardwood display and storage box.  The box is lined with protective felt and inlaid with solid brass.  Custom plaques can be mounted on the box with your personalized engraving.  The 8-inch sextant and box make excellent awards and gifts.
