    Plath Sextant Button
    From: Phil Camera

    Hi everyone, I'm new to this list.  I've just obtained a very nice Plath 
    Navistar Professional sextant and have a dumb question.  On the back of the 
    micrometer drum is an orange plastic button.  What does that do?  Is it for a 
    light to reading the vernier?  If so, where and how does one change the 
    batteries?  I didn't get a manual with the unit.  Tnx in advance, Phil
