Full Description:
The quality of the Tamaya Spica Nautical Sextant has been proven in many years of use by ocean-going navigators.  Its optical system is designed to assure the maximum performance with a full 57 mm index mirror.  The Tamaya Spica Sextant features a lightweight die cast aluminum alloy frame with a corrosion resistant black finish and a Bronze arc for highly accurate +/-10 arcsecond readings.  Two interchangeable 4x40mm and 7x35mm telescopes with special rubber eye protectors are available.  The Tamaya Spica Nautical Sextant offers full illumination of both the arc and drum.  The sextant can be stored in the fitted case with either scope mounted.  This sextant is fully functional for navigation and comes with a certificate of calibration.

Accessories:
At least one telescope is required for use.  The case can hold the sextant and both telescopes.  The 4x40 scope has a brighter image than the 7x35 monocular and is best for low-light conditions or when the vessel is heaving.  The 4x40 scope has fully coated optics and a large 40 mm objective lens to yield a sharp four-power non-inverted image.  The Tamaya 7x35 monocular scope produces a sharp high power 7-power wide angle non-inverted image.  The Tamaya 7x35 monocular scope is more powerful than the 4x40 scope for more accurate readings.  Either scope fits both Tamaya's Spica and Jupiter Sextants.  The scope has fully coated optics and a large 35 mm objective lens.
