This instrument is actually a reproduction of a 17th century Octant. Despite its inaccuracy in measuring the height of the sun and stars, it allowed navigators to determine geographical latitude.

The arc of the Octant is 45 or 1/8 of the circumference (hence the name). The Sextant (1757) replaced the wooden frame with a metal one, progressively replaced the Octant and continues to be used.
