Full Description:
The Jupiter sextant is Tamaya's full sized "best value" calibrated and fully functional nautical sextant.  It has many of the features of more expensive sextants yet still has impressive +/- 12 arcsecond accuracy.  The large 57x42 mm index mirror and 57 mm diameter horizon offer a bright view.  The inclined handle provides a natural and comfortable grip.  Built to rigid specifications and engineered for quality, the Jupiter professional marine sextant is the most popular selling sextant Tamaya offers.  The Tamaya Jupiter Sextant offers full illumination on both the arc and drum.  Interchangeable 4x40 or 7x35 monocular scopes are available.  This sextant is fully functional for navigation and comes with a certificate of calibration.

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.
