    Re: Sight Tube vs. 4x40mm Scope

    So, is the difference caused by the traditional mirror or the sight tube?
    I ask because Mr. Burch at the Starpath School of Navigation does not seem to be a big fan of the whole horizon mirror and I am just curious as to others' opinions.
    That said, I already have a sextant with a traditional mirror, and haven't had a chance to use it yet (Chicago winters are not too conducive to standing at the lakefront at twilight for any reason), so I have no opinion.
