Any of the sextant's six filters can be swung into position.
A powerful magnifier can be moved to assist in reading the vernier scale.
The sextant is beautifully made of solid brass with a German silver scale, and is fully functional.
The sextant's telescope produces a bright and clear image.

The index mirror can be adjusted using two knurled brass screws.
The angle on the vernier scale is set to zero degrees and the index mirror is adjusted so that the images from both optical paths as viewed through the telescope align to produce one image.
This sextant is beautiful and fully functional, but not intended for navigation.


The back of the sextant has a large hardwood handle with a brass plate.  Each plate is engtaved "Stanley London 1920" and a serial number.
