    Re: Sextants, vernier and micrometer.

    Dear George,
    Could you look at the picture of the vernier
    of that Hezzanith on e-bay we just discussed:
    http://www.math.purdue.edu/~eremenko/pic1.jpg
    It is supposed to provide 0.2' reading.
    What do you think of it?
    
    One more request. As I understand, you had that
    bad sextant (which you returned) in your possession
    for few days. Could you recall some detail about
    it which would permit to exclude the possibility that
    this one is the same?
    
    Like the number and power of the scopes. Presence/absence
    of eyepiece filters?
    Anything about the certificate?
    Was it a 10" reading vernier? (This one is 0.2' reading).
    
    Thanks.
    Alex.
