ASTRO-COMPASS MK II

Sometimes you see something and you don't know what it is, but it's just cool....
Case in point, my new Astro-Compass Mark II...
I thought originally this was for telescopes, but actually, it's for planes from the 30's-40's to navigate.
I looked it up and saw some WWII versions, but I think this one is a civilian model.
It's very cool.  Knobs that make it go this way and that....  And it's in great shape too.
After you set it you look through the top and then you know where you are.
Even has the  Stamp on it like some of my other stuff from this time period.
It came in this bakelite box... It's just cool.  I'll never use it to get my bearing, but it's just cool.  It's Vintage Gear for Guys.
