    Re: SNO-M sextant manual
    From: Paul Hirose

    Is it vital to have the manufacturer's manual for a sextant? I thought
    sextants were relatively generic items, like slide rules. Some of my
    slide rules have manuals, some don't.  If you know how to use
    one, you can can use them all.
    
    I studied the manual for my Astra when it arrived, but haven't looked at
    it since. As far as I remember, it didn't say anything you couldn't find
    in any good book on celestial navigation, or figure out by examining the
    sextant.
