    French Sextant
    From: Doug Royer

    Joel,
    I was browsing through stuff on e-bay today and as usual stopped off at your
    store to check it out.
    What really caught my eye(I'm not in the market for a sextant.Just like to
    look)was the Poulin model 808 sextant you have listed.
    That is an interesting sextant.I've not seen many that are configured as
    that one.
    I wonder why the sextant manufactures changed the design from being able to
    rest the sextant with the handle faceing up.Makes more sense to me to have
    them this way as one can grab the handle 1st and not the frame?
    Was the 8 x 30 scope original?That's a  high power scope on such an
    instrument.
