I’m reasonably sure it is a Plath sextant…based on frame and micrometer .
This picture of a navigation officer (Soviet-flagged ship)
is from a 1985 Slovak translation of a Russian book for children written by S.
Sakharnov and originally published in 1972. Anybody can please determine
what brand the sextant is? It does not look like the SNO-T to me, which
is what I thought those guys were most likely to use at the time.
