    Telescope is mounted incorrectly: should be reversed.
    The price seems reasonable, for a sextant with two telescopes, which seems to be in a reasonably good
    condition.
    The pictures do not show the state of the optics (mirrors). I would ask the seller whether they are
    not broken at least.
    
    Simex seems to be a clone of Tamaya, a reputable Japanese company.

    Is the telescope mounted  back to front?
    
    If the telescope can be mounted correctly is $US215 a reasonable asking price 
    i.e. not too high but also not suspiciously too low?
    
    Any comments on this make of sextant?
    
    At this price I am tempted to take a risk provided  there aren't any obvious 
    reasons why I should not purchase it.
