    Fred,
    
    Yes, I agree completely.
    Moreover, I feel that if I switch
    to another sextant/telescope now, I will
    need a lot of practice again to achieve
    the results of the same accuracy.
    Perhaps not years, but substantial practice.
    For example, my results with the old vernier
    C. Plath are much worse.
    And of course, I blame the sextant first:-)
    
    Alex.
