    Dear Cortney,
    Yes, I would be very interested in seeing SNO-M manual.
    (SNO-T I have). In Russian. In exchange I will translate
    for you whatever you want to know from it.
    If you could photocopy and mail/fax it to me
    whatever is more convenient for you.
    My address and fax number is in the next
    off-the-list message.

    Illinois is much flatter, not mentioning Florida:-)

    From the pictures I saw I conclude that both scopes would fit
    both sextants, is this correct?
    After many trials, I find the inverting scope superior, for
    all tasks, but I only
    practiced on
    P.S. BTW, I dound and re-read some old messages on SNO.
    The people who seem to know more about their history,
    manufacturing and differences are Doug Royer and Lee Martin.
    It was Lee Martin who mentioned plundering the Freiberger
    factory, and even gave the precise date: May 8 1945.
    Mon Oct 06 2003 - 19:05:27 EDT. I'd like to know more
    about this if they can tell us.
