Further information on Station Pointer's as described in the Royal Museums Greenwich: 'A station pointer is used for plotting a ship’s position from horizontal sextant angles taken between two or more objects or geographical features. To use it, the angles measured by the sextant are used to set the positions of the movable arms around the circle on the station pointer. This can then be placed on a chart to draw position lines from the features observed and so plot the ship’s position.'
