Sperti Astro Compass MKII vintage navigation instrument

This Sperti Astro-Compass MK II is in great shape, and is still in it's original wood carrying case.

The Astro-Compass was made for military use during World War 2 in aircraft. The instrument is used to indicate true north by pointing it at a known star, and found application mainly at high latitudes w magnetic variation, and angle of magnetic dip at high altitudes can render magnetic compasses useless.

This would make a great gift for your favorite aviation or military collector, or a fantastic addition to your own collection.
