Real easy-to-use sextant Review by Navman

Quality

It's light, easy to use, and sufficiently accurate for pinpoint astro nav on a yacht.

In my experience it's better to avoid the metal sextants. They're far more expensive, but they're also much heavier. If you're waiting around for a glimpse of the sun on an overcast day, light weight is import, unless you're a body builder.

You pay a lot more money for the Mk25. OK it has the 'all view' mirror, but with a little practice the split screen is dead easy to use.
