Like New DAVIS Mark 25 Beam Converger Sextant

Like New DAVIS Mark 25 Beam Converger Sextant with padded storage case. The Mark 25 is the top of the line Davis sextant. It features a "full horizon mirror" replacing the conventional 1/2 silvered horizon mirror. An additional feature is the LED night illuminated scale, usually only found on much higher end sextants. Includes new batteries. This sextant has two 3X telescopes and a 1X viewer.

This sextant looks brand new, no cracks, marks or defects. The case looks new. Also included in this package are two sight reduction books, the sextant manual, “The Guide to Celestial Navigation” by Cunliffe, an artificial horizon (practice at home), and Universe Skywheels (to identify stars).

I learned celestial navigation after a friend's boat was hit by lightning mid-Atlantic - knocked out all electronics. This setup includes everything you need to learn and use celestial navigation -- except an accurate watch

FREE shipping anywhere in the lower 48 states. $175 Email me at windman_sail@fastmail.us

Re: Like New DAVIS Mark 25 Beam Converger Sextant

The Sight Reduction Tables are Pub 249, Volumes 2 and 3. They are permanent publications and are time independent -- They cover Latitudes 0-89 degrees and Declinations from 0 - 29 degrees. There are great computer programs that will do the math for you.

BTW, a smart offshore cruiser will store his GPS and small electronics away from potential EMF pulses during heavy lightning -- don't forget they're in your oven
