    A Plath Sextant listed for sale with an odd eye piece
    From: Glen Swanson
    Date: 2021 Feb 7, 11:21 +0100

    If I may add to the recent discussions on the Plath Sextants, I just saw in a local (Danish) trader an older (49646) Plath sextant for sale. The seller is asking for bids with a recommended price of 3,500 Danish Kroner (about 575USD).

    But I’m raising this as I can see in the photo a rather curious eye piece attachment, and I wonder if anyone might know what this might be. Is it some sort of image- stabiliser, light enhancement device, or could it be an artificial horizon? 

    Perhaps whatever it is might justify what might be a bit of a high price.

    Anyway, in light of recent posts, I thought I’d share this photo. If it fails to load you can see the sextant here.
