Marine Captain Sextant – Brass Nautical Sextan
A sextant is an instrument used to measure the angle between any two visible objects. Its primary use is to determine the angle between acelestial object and the horizon which is known as the altitude. Making this measurement is known as sighting the object, shooting the object, or taking a sight. The angle, and the time when it was measured, can be used to calculate a position line on a nautical or aeronautical chart. A common use of the sextant is to sight the sun at noon to find one's latitude.
