Mayflower 2020 Commemoration Gifts
Just two short years from now, we will be marking the 400th anniversary of the voyage of the Mayflower and the founding of Plymouth Colony.  This is an exciting opportunity to commemorate the pilgrims and the Mayflower landing and to share the inspirational story.  As we draw closer to 2020, there will be opportunities where we will need your financial support.  Whether you have an ancestor who was a pilgrim or not, we are asking for your help to make our celebration events a reality.

Stanley London has partnered with the San Diego Colony Mayflower Society to help raise money to fund these events.  Stanley London offers replicas of maritime instruments used during Mayflower times.  Each instrument is engraved to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower voyage.  These instruments make great gifts as well as timeless keepsakes and help our Mayflower Society achieve its goals.

25x30 Brass Telescope with Wood Stand

$63.90
This 25x30 Brass Telescope is a 4-pipe brass spyglass telescope and comes with a wood stand handmade in our Anaheim, CA warehouse.  The wood stand is laser engraved with exclusive, commemorative Mayflower artwork.  This handheld small brass telescope is almost as powerful as our largest floor-standing harbormaster telescopes.  Like all of our brass telescopes, this telescope produces a sharp non-inverting (upright) image.  It has a precision 30 mm objective lens and the optics are the highest quality with a full anti-reflection coating.  Unlike our other spyglass telescopes where you have to shorten the smallest pipe to focus, this telescope has a unique feature where you simply rotate the eyepiece to bring the image into crystal clear focus.  Best of all, unlike other polished brass telescopes, this one has a special scratch resistant clear coating that eliminates tarnish and fingerprints on the brass.  The telescope has 25 power bright and sharp optics.  The telescope is 1 3/8 (35 mm) inches in diameter, 13 1/2 inches (34.3 cm) long when fully extended and 5 3/8 inches (13.6 cm) long when collapsed.  The telescope weighs 7.5 ounces (213 grams).  The telescope is engraved "Stanley London" near the eyepiece.

Solid Brass Nocturnal with Hardwood Stand
$51.95
This is a full size faithful solid brass reproduction of the nocturnal, which was an early sea-faring navigational instrument.  The nocturnal or "night disc," was used in navigation to calculate the latitude and the time at night.  First described in 1272, this simple method of latitude determination using the nocturnal continued to be improved upon until its use faded in the late fifteenth century.
The nocturnal is elaborately decorated and has a shape roughly similar to that of a hand mirror.  Corresponding to the months of the year, the circumference was divided into twelve equal parts.  An "index" or "pointer" pivoted from the disc's center.  During use, the nocturnal was placed at arm's length with the North Star Polaris visible through a hole in the center.  The second brightest star in Ursa Minor, Kobach, which circles the pole star Polaris, is aligned with the pointer.  The nocturnal's scale would yield a correction in arcminutes, to be applied to Polaris.  If the slight distance of Polaris from the true pole was not compensated, it could result in a 50-mile error. 
The nocturnal was also able to determine the time from the celestial clock that rotates around Polaris.  Scales around the perimeter were used to set the month and day.  The readings taken would yield the time. 
The nocturnal measures 4 1/2 inches (11.4 cm) in diameter, 5 1/2 inches (14.0 cm) tall, and weighs a solid 9.1 ounces (258 grams).  The hardwood base is 4 1/2 inches (11.4 cm) wide and 2 1/8 inches (5.4 cm) deep.
Unfortunately, we are unable to engrave this item so the commemorative Mayflower artwork is not available.
