    Isn't there another slide in the inverting telescope?  It looks like there is 
    an eyepiece on the right side.
    
    Bill said that three-ring Husuns' with an inverting telescope were designated 
    as a "Master."  My "Mate" has "Mate" stamped on the arc.  He also said the 
    "Masters" had lesser arc errors.

    > Bill, Fred - I must have been very lucky with my eBay purchase, because I 
    obtained a post 23,000 �Mates� three circle sextant with zero arc 
    corrections.  At least the sextant adjuster calls it a �Mates� in the 
    attached receipt.  Do you think you could get a new index mirror fitted and 
    adjusted for one pound seventeen shillings and sixpence today?

    with two slides.  I�ve only got one, the four wire one. Can anyone tell me 
    what went in the little rectangular housing on the bottom left and the 
    circular housing top right.  Could it be to put the star telescope in when 
    not in use, or for the missing slide? Dave
