Davis Sextant Mark 3, Celestial Navigation 132, Davis Artificial Horizon 144 Bundle (3 Items)
Mark 3 Sextant, sometimes referred to as a "lifeboat" sextant, is an inexpensive training sextant. Yet this model has taken sailors around the world! It is full-sized and has sunshades, but it does not have optical magnification that would help you find dim celestial bodies meaning you will have to rely on brighter stars at night. Great as a backup or as an introduction into the world of Celestial Navigation, this model also comes with instructional booklet for easy use.
132, a Simplified, Yet Complete, Celestial Navigation System Card includes everything you need for Marine Navigation including Sextant Use and Corrections. This quick reference guide details key concepts, best practices, and useful constellations.
The Artificial Horizon comes with 2 sunshades, lid and full directions. Great for backyard practice. Find exact position when inland and making exact sextant shot on foggy mornings. To use, fill with water and read the angle of the reflected sun with your sextant. Half your sextant reading is the sun & angle above the true horizon.

“The only ship you can truly steer in this ocean is the one you’re sailing. Quit trying to alter the winds; harness them.”

– Richelle E. Goodrich

“Whenever I find myself growing grim […] I quietly take to the ship. Almost all men in their degree, some time or other, cherish very nearly the same feelings towards the ocean with me.”

– Herman Melville

“The fishermen know that the sea is dangerous and the storm terrible, but they have never found these dangers sufficient reason for remaining ashore.”

– Vincent Van Gogh
