    Re: Integrating marine sextant

    The name under which it is listed
    is compatible with the Russian label
    on the box and on the manual: IMS-3.
    Which I interpret as "Integriruiushchii Morskoi Sextan"
    (Integrating marine sextant). But of course,
    other, unexpected interpretations are possible.
    (I remember how much time and efforts it took to me to decipher
    the stupid abbreviation SNO-T:-)
    I am sure the manual contains the explanation of what
    IMS stands for. And I see no reason for the seller
    to deceive us and to represent an aircraft sextant
    as a marine sextant.
    Its weight is enormous: 12 kg.
    (With the box and everything inside the box).
    Are aircraft sextants really so hudge and heavy?
    Apparently it has some straps to fix it on your shoulders.
    I have no other evidence.
