Vintage Astro Compass. Astro Compass MKII. Widely used by the Royal Air Force during World War II, the Astro Compass is an instrument used to determine true heading based on the position of the sun or stars, unlike a traditional magnetic compass. The device consists of a bearing plate with a movable sighting device attached to it. This main platform is adjustable by reference to two integral spirit levels. Measuring 6" in height. Accompanied by original wooden box measuring 10 x 7 x 5½". Straps on box have frayed, and box is worn from age. Device, however, appears in very good condition.
Estimated Value $200 - 250.

Realized $115
