The lid rotates 360° around both axes, making measurements possible for any surface including overhangs. The lid can extend or create the measurement surface itself. The default orientation of compass North makes this the only transit in the world that can measure strike & dip simultaneously. A simple rotation of the azimuth ring also allows simultaneous measurement of dip angle & dip direction if that is preferred. A secondary axis of rotation and lid protractor allows simultaneous measurement of trend & plunge. The hollow hinge/sighting tube allows for direct horizontal and vertical sighting measurements. Hinge dial enables dip angle measurements and also serves as a versatile protractor. Excellent contact and sighting measurement capabilities. Dual long-level bubbles allow the user to level the compass from the sides and bottom. The flat bottom allows for easier dip angle and dip azimuth measurements at low angles. The needle can be set to lock automatically, allowing for accurate readings. The precision NdFeB disc magnet provides very accurate readings and resists demagnetization. The magnetic needle can be balanced for use almost anywhere in the world . Induction dampening makes for a quick-settling needle.
