Order No. 244.SXS
Very stable, pre-punched cardboard kit with two unbreakable stainless steel diamond mirrors and a switchable sun filter.
The sextant is not a toy, but a fully functional, field-tested device with a display accuracy of between 5 and 10 minutes of arc.
At sea, the natural horizon is used for horizontal alignment of the sextant. For surveying on land, AstroMedia has created a smart replacement: With the help of a third mirror, a spirit level and the punched cardboard components, the height can be measured independently of the natural horizon.
Packaging: 300 x 210 x 6 mm
