    Sextant infos
    From: Pierre Boucher
    Date: 2002 Jan 29, 9:28 AM

    A friend bought a Russian sextant through e-bay and is looking for infos.
    He received the sextant in his wooden box.
    Screwed to the box are 2 small engraved plates
    A small ( 10mm x 30mm ) engraved plate shows  SNO-M
    A bigger one ( 20mm x 40mm ) shows a circle in the middle with the letter K
    followed by a figure that looks like a 6.  Years, serial numbers, etc. also
    appears on the plate.
    The instrument in painted grey (probably aluminum).
    When you look through the eyepiece (scope), the image is reversed like in a
    Glued inside the cover of the box are 2 pieces of paper with various
    inscriptions (probably corrections to be applied or something similar but
    can not decepher exept for the numbers as it is written in Russian)
    Any infos ???
    many thanks
