8-inch Brass Sextant
8-inch (20 cm) Stanley London Brass Sextant
The 8-inch (20 cm) standard-sized antique reproduction sextant features six filters, a scale magnifier, and a slow-motion control with vernier readout.  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).

Any of the six filters can be swung into position.
Also, to assist in reading the vernier scale, a powerful magnifier can be used.
This fully functional sextant is beautifully made of solid brass with a German Silver scale.
A bright and sharp image is produced by the sextant's telescope.

This photograph shows the telescope, as well as the adjustable index mirror, which rotates as the angle of the index arm changes.

Two knurled brass screws can be turned to adjust the index mirror.
A single image is produced when the angle on the vernier scale is set to zero degrees and the index mirror is adjusted so images from both optical paths as viewed through the telescope align.
Please note that this beautiful and fully functional sextant is not intended for navigation.

A large hardwood handle with brass plate is located on the back of the sextant.  Each plate is engraved with a serial number and "Stanley London 1920".

Detail of Stanley London Engraving on Index Arm
The vernier scale magnifier and the Stanley London stamping are shown in this photograph.
Also "Stanley London" is engraved on the fine tuning control of each sextant.

A very similar micrometer drum of this sextant is 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.

A beautiful hardwood display and storage box is included with the purchase of the sextant.  The box is lined with felt and inlaid with solid brass.

The 8-inch sextant and box make excellent awards and gifts.
