    Just soliciting opinions on this sextant.  Any thoughts appreciated.

    If you like the traditional horizon mirror it is a very good deal.  If you prefer a whole horizon mirror you would need to buy the Mark 25.  Either of these will get you anywhere you want to go using celestial.  When and if you upgrade to a metal sextant, the plastic one will make a good addition to an abandon ship bag.
