    Index mirror type

    Hello everyone,
    I don't know if somebody have noticed that index mirror in different sextants are of different types namely either first or second surface mirrors. I've made some comparison photos (Tamaya vs. Freiberger sextants) from where it is clearly can be seen. As we see Tamaya has second while Freiberger (and also Russian sextants) firs surface mirrors.

    First surface mirror reflects a bit more light which is a slight advantage for star sights but it is more prone for scratches and is more expensive. 
    Any more advantages or disadvantages of either?
    kind regards,
    Igor
