    Astra altenrative? Was: GPS shortcomings.

    This was repeated several times in this discussion:
    
    > Buy a new Astra IIIb, or a used metal sextant if you have to.
    
    I want to remind that there are still new Russian sextants
    available. Not in the sense that they were made yesterday,
    but in the sense that they were never used:-)
    
    And not only on e-bay, and not only from former Soviet Union.
    I don't want to advertise concrete sellers on this list
    but little web search shows shops (In Europe) which sell
    Freibergers and SNO-T "in perfect condition, with two scopes for 370EU"
    and SNO-M for 250-280EU.
    As I understand, these sellers will ship worldwide,
    give some warranty and do repare. They sell spare parts and
    re-silver mirrors. And they speak perfect English:-)
    
    A new (made in 1990-s but never used, in factory wrapping)
    SNO-T with 2 scopes and spare mirror can be bought on e-bay
    from a Russian or Ukrainian seller
    for $300 or 320 plus $100 for shipping and money transfer.
    
    Alex.
