    Re: Sextant telescope

    It is possible to rotate the index arm all the way down to zero with the star scope mounted, there is very little clearance, but the sextant works fine with this telescope. Bill's explanation may indeed be the correct one and, if so, the person doing the repair was careful to make sure that there was clearance between the telescope and the index mirror throughout the range of movement of the index arm.

    My theory had been that the telescope was originally meant for the SNO-M and then used to replace a broken or lost SNO-T telescope. Does anybody have a SNO-M to compare these telescopes and confirm or refute this theory?

    Humm, maybe I have a very rare and therefor more valuable variation of the SNO-T.
