    Re: Sextants with Polarizing filters

    I suspect from memory that what I asked for was a Polaris with polarisers and what I got was a H/Ultra with the Polaris horizon glass - net effect the same! I see from the site that they call this horizon glass a "Clear-View" mirror:

    From C&P?s site:
     
    ?Polarizing Shade Glasses
    One each set of polarizing shades are for the star and horizon view. This allows simple brightness control of star and horizon image. Dazzling will be avoided. Sudden changes of brightness caused by movement of clouds will simply and quickly be corrected. ?
     
    It sounds as though a set of polarizing filters comes as standard with the Horizon Ultra. There would have to be two for the brightness control promised, by selectively turning either or both.
