    Re: Mark IX sextant manual
    From: Paul Brewer
    Date: 2009 Aug 11, 15:59 +0100

    My abject apologies!
    
    There is a Mk IXB. It is as an A model but has a double time automatic 
    attachment. This can be set to take 60 shots in either 1 or 2 minutes. 
    
    The addition of am M (as in IXAM or BM) indicates a double eye piece, one normal and the other X2.
    
    I have never seen an official manual for the B model so I for one will be 
    interesting to see what arrives. 
    
    Paul.
