    Greg,
    And my web search led me to Bill Morris's blog which also says that 
    Sewill's Setus Prima is a modified SNO-T.
    I only did not understand how it is modified: all pictures show exact SNO-T,
    including the box and accessories.
    
    The most amazing thing is the date 1995.
    Until now I thought that production of SNO-T stopped in 1992.
    I've never seen an SNO-T (labeled as SNO-T) with a later date. The year is stamped on the arm.
    
    About 10 years ago I called SNO-T manufacturer by phone, (by request of an American friend)
    and tried to find out whether they will be interested in selling them abroad.
    They flatly refused this suggestion.
    
    Now it turns out that Sewill was more successfull...
    
    Alex.

    Alex,
    
    When I did a google search of
    
    SEWILL'S CETUS PRIMA MARINE SEXTANT
    
    A web page came up showing an SNO-T.  I was surprised to see this also. 
    Perhaps Graham can provide us with an image of the sextant.
