Beauteous Brass Sextant

Sextants came along after astrolabes but before GPS. (Just like you.) They're used for finding latitude and the distance between objects, and are still the non-electric, non-satellite-dependent backup for navigators. Ours is a beauty in solid brass with glass optical components, at a tiny price. Measures approx 4-5/8" x 4-1/4" x 3-1/4" overall and comes in a very nice wooden case. Includes instructions, which you're going to need unless you went to Annapolis where they still teach it. Handy for learning the principles of how a sextant works, but please don't try to find your way to Bora Bora with it, this one is more decorative than accurate.
