The Marine Sextant The  Marine Sextant The  marine  sextant’s  only  function  is  to  measure  angles,  either horizontally  or  vertically.  The  most  common  use  of  the  sextant  is  for celestial  observations  using  vertical  angles  between  celestial  objects  and the  horizon.  It  is  also  used  for  fixing  your  position  using  horizontal angles  between  three  charted  objects.  In  this  chapter,  we  will  concern ourselves  with  the  latter  method.  Before  we  can  learn  how  to  fix  the ships  position  using  the  marine  sextant,  we  need  to  learn  how  to  operate the  marine  sextant.  Figure  8-12  shows  the  parts  of  a  marine  sextant.
