    Sextant telescopes
    From: Hal Mueller

    My Astra IIIB came with a 3.5x40 telescope.  Celestaire also sells a
    6x30 telescope, and a zero-mag sight tube.  I've read the online
    description of telescope sizes
    (http://www.celestaire.com/page8.html), but am curious--what are
    people actually using?
    
    It appears that the 6x30 would potentially give better accuracy for
    lunar distance sights.  But I've never tried to reduce a lunar
    distance, let alone shoot one.
    
    I know Ken would love to sell me both a 6x30 and a zero-map :)
