box. Looks great . . The wood
box has Sextant
, but in the little t
I am not sure of the type of metal which makes up the body of the sextant,
one scope/eyepiece is probably 12 x 20 mm, I am not positive but those are the numbers used
4 shades for index mirror and 3 shades for horizon mirror. Other than that , I really do not know much about these instruments. T is a spot or two on the arc
that shows green, so a polishing may be in order. The primary eyepiece, which has been screwed in place since I have had the sextant, fits perfectly into the only unoccupied hole in the box, so I am pretty sure nothing is missing. Still has stamped card. In the bottom of the box is the spare scope
, a small screwdriver, a bag of dessicant, and some tissue.
