    Dear Dan,
    
    Re your sextant list:
    C. Plath- you can move them to the out of business list as of about 1
    year ago.  There are still a few Navistar Traditionals and at least one
    Classic in the pipeline, but they will be gone soon.
    
    Cassens & Plath- They claim another model called �CP Sailing�, but it is
    the same as the Astra IIIB . Just privately branded.
    
    Freiberger- Located in the town of Freiberg (East)  There is another
    Freiberg (west). Their sextant is also known as the Zeiss sextant.
    
    Changzhou Celestaire Instrument Co- located in the town of Changzhou, 75
    miles NW of Shanghai.
    
    Francis Barker- Still in business, but no longer making sextants.
    Located in Edenbridge, Kent.
    
    EBBCO- This was still being made at least up until 4 years ago, and I
    suspect it still is.  You see them a lot in Europe.
    
    As a matter of interest, I have personally visited each of the above
    factories to observe their operations.
