The Sextant is an informational accessory that displays the current moon phase. This accessory can be received as a 2.5% (1 in 40) / 3.3% (1 in 30)  chance reward for completing Fishing quests for the Angler NPC. It is part of the Cell Phone's crafting tree.
On the 电脑版, the Angler will not give you a Sextant as a reward if you already have one in your inventory or in any of your Portable Storages. However, if you have a Fisherman's Pocket Guide, Weather Radio, and Sextant (or at least one of the accessories crafted from them: the Fish Finder, PDA, or 手机) in your inventories, he will be able to give you duplicate Sextants.
- Outside of the game, a sextant is used to determine the angle between two objects, often by sailors to determine latitude, and has nothing to do with the phase of the moon.
