    Re: Periscopic sextant with mount

    " ...but the mounts are rare as hens' teeth."
    Is that so? I got two of the mounts. One in a very good condition (ex German
    Air Force, the version that has the intrinsic dc converter from 28 to 3
    Volts) , the other is fairly good (28 Volts "straight" version). The former
    may eventually "return to service"  in a Lockheed L-1649A Super Star which is
    currently under restoration in Auburn/Maine for Lufthansa. I'll  give them a
    matching Kollsman Periscopic sextant as well (pendulum mirror version). At
    least that is the plan. The sextant will of course not be used a a navigation
    aid any more. It is only for the historical aspect.
