    Geremy,
    Your photos cannot be seen. Neither the sextant nor the ship.
    The error message: "Page not found".
    
    > There is also no maginifier for
    
    Magnifier/illuminator seems to be one of the many unique features
    of SNO. I don't know any other sextant (except SNO-T and SNO-M)
    with a drum/wormscrew AND a magnifier.
    
    
    > The sextants I prefer (C&P and Tamaya) have vernier scale of 0.1 and 0.2
    > respectively on the micrometer drum.
    
    Some C Plath's of 1950 also have 1' drum and no vernier.
    An opinion was expressed in this list that vernier is useless
    on a 1' drum of a modern sextant. I agree. except for the Lunars.
    
    > I am linking a photo of the drum.  What would you say that it reads?
    
    Sorry, I did not get the photo.
    
    Alex.
