    Re: MA-1 on eBay

    I asked the seller several questions: 

    1. Does the averager work? Push done the lever to reset it and then press the start lever and it should run for 120 seconds.
    2. Can you post a photo of the back of the instrument? (to see if there are the screw holes for a strap)
    3, Does the reticle illuminate and, if you can see it, does it move freely when you tilt the sextant?

    ==============================================

    and he replied:

    the averager works and the power required is 5 volts.

    The reticle illuminates and moves freely with the pendulous mirror. I will post a photo of the back as soon as I am able.
