Hoppe's Improved Sextant
The sextant has a polished brass diamond-pattern frame with two polished limbs, two index arms, and a wooden handle. The tangent screws and clamping screws are positioned on the back of both index arms. The sextant has four shades, three red and one green, and three horizon shades, two red and one green. Index-glass adjustment is made by a screw and on the horizon glass by a worm screw operated by a capstan screw. The swivelling arm of the lower magnifier is broken, the magnifier is missing and the upper magnifier is on a 45mm swivelling arm.
