    RES: Lights,Leds and scopes etc.

    Bruce, the inverting charachteristic is a nuisance. It?s good to have the
    crosshairs and the magnifying power (say 7x), but try to get a noninverting
    one (internal prism does the trick).I?m using a small spotting scope (the
    small thing attached to astronomical telescopes) for which I adapted a
    sliding bracket with colimation adjustment screws. Half a binocular should
    do also, but you`ll have to glue crosshairs at the focal plane of the
    ocular.The Tamaya 7x30 is non inverting, but at US$300 you can buy the SNO T
    sextant complete with two scopes...

    Thanks Jose, for the solid information on telescope interchangeability. That
    gives me hope of finding an inverting telescope with collimating wires that
    will fit on the Tamaya.
    Fred, the 12X would be too much for me. But if someone has a 9X or less for
    sale at a reasonable price I'll buy it. 6X or 7x would be preferred.
