    Jose,
    
    I'd actually prefer an inverting 'scope. My special interest is the old
    nautical astronomy, and that's what the old timers had to work with. According to
    the nineteenth-century navigation manuals an inverting 'scope takes time to get
    used to, but after that is no trouble. Lewis, of Lewis & Clark, mentioned
    that he preferred the inverting 'scope for all his sights.
    
    I can't afford one of the old vernier sextants, not a topnotch one anyway, so
    want to put an inverting 'scope with collimating wires on the sextant I have
    and trust.
    
    That's a great idea, fitting a spotting 'scope to your sextant! If I can't
    get an inverting 'scope, that's what I'll do.
    
    Bruce
