Astro Compass MK II – Mounting Base


Used by pilots and navigators to determine accurate true heading by the sun or stars in arctic regions. It is well suited for aligning a boat’s compass while away from shore-based magnetic interference. It is also useful to celestial navigators and amateur astronomers for identifying stars. It also functions as a pelorus with extremely fast operation.

The astrocompass functions by means of measured movement in three independent axes. The uppermost member contains a peep sight for stellar use and a shadow bar for use with the sun. The main platform is adjustable by reference to two integral spirit levels while mounted on the base.
