    If I had to modify SNO-T,
    I would add illuminaton (there is even a convenient slot in the handle which will fit the battery:-)
    a zero magnification tube and a set of telescope filters.
    
    And would make a decent box.
    Alex.

    You are correct, Alex, it is a SNO-T but with a micrometer vernier and 
    Sewill's name. They have only done what many other retailers used to do (and 
    for all I know, still do): buy an un-named sextant/ chronometer/ clock 
    movement wholesale and put their own name to it.
