    Re: The "big" sextant manufactures

    You will find the Navy Mark 3 far better than a Davis Plastic . The
    mirrors are bigger, the frame is more stable when exposed to heat, the
    extra weight will stablize the image in wind, better optics, easier to
    maintain, shares parts with a Plath, great grip, and collectable. The
    6x30 scope will give the best sight picture for Sun observations and
    the 4x40 will give the brightest picture for star observations.
