    You might be surprised by the number of people who know enough of the Cyrillic alphabet to understand that CH is really SN. Even when I was a kid, I understood (and so did a number of my friends at the time) that the CCCP on "things Soviet" was really SSSR. For that matter, the H versus N thing figured prominently in "Murder on the Orient Express" (the movie at least --I never read the book). Far more people today than in decades past have become familiar with the various versions of the Cyrillic alphabet.  I'm not saying that you *must* refer to this sextant as SNO-T. You're the one with a business to run and your choice is certain to be informed. But perhaps there are some customers who are turned off by the choice. A very simple approach would be to write SNO-T/SNO-T.
