    Out of 29 Sextants (not to mention octants)…..no plastic J


    You asked earlier      Is it my imagination, or do I remember a sextant with legs on the opposite side as the handle?”   You are probably thinking of the sounding sextants from the sixties – I have one by Kelvin Hughes like that (very handy for picking up, putting down on a regular basis as would be done when surveying). Instead of sending a photo I will refer you what Bill Morris has online:- http://sextantbook.com/2009/05/06/sounding-sextants-2/
