    Re: Sextants with Polarizing filters

    Apparently this sextant normally comes with a whole horizon mirror, to enable use of the double prism lens. Could you elaborate a little more on your mirror – eg; is it an optional extra from C&P, if not where did it come from?

     

    thanks in advance

    C&P Horizon Ultra - Mike H Special!

    The Horizon Ultra comes with one on the horizon glass I think. I asked for an extra to be added on the index mirror. The horizon glass is also different. A vertical strip down the centre has quartz coating so that it's a "whole horizon" style mirror and the outsides are clear glass - works brilliantly. Sheer indulgence but it's good!


    Regards

    Mike
