The 8-inch (20 cm) standard-sized antique reproduction sextant has six filters, a scale magnifier, and a slow-motion control
with vernier readout.
Any of the sextant's six filters can be swung into position.
A powerful magnifier can be moved to assist in reading the vernier scale.
The sextant is beautifully made of solid brass with a German Silver scale, and is fully functional.
The sextant's telescope produces a bright and clear image.
The index mirror can be adjusted using two knurled brass screws.
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 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).
This sextant is beautiful and fully functional, but not intended for navigation.
The back of the sextant has a large hardwood handle with a brass plate.
Each plate is engraved "Stanley London 1920" and with a serial number.
Also, every sextant is engraved with "Stanley London" on the fine tuning control.
A nearly identical micrometer drum of this sextant is also available.
The only difference between these sextants is the micrometer drum vs. vernier readouts on the index arm.
The micrometer drum represents the design of modern sextants and the vernier readout version is found in older designs.
The sextant comes complete with a beautiful hardwood display and storage box.
The box is lined with protective felt and inlaid with solid brass.
Each box has a solid brass inlaid plaque engraved "Nautical Sextant Stanley London 1920."
Custom plaques can be mounted on the box with your individualized engraving.
The 8-inch sextant and box make excellent awards and gifts.
The Stanley London 8-inch serialized reproduction antique sextant with slow-motion controls, including the beautiful
brass inlaid box are only $315.
