    My limited experience on a small yacht (with SNO-T)
    shows that for most observations when it really sails
    you cannot use any scope. I recommend a zero-mag tube
    (can be found in Celestaire). Some yacht authorities
    say the same.
    For observations in a harbor or at anchor or is still weather
    you can use the inverting scope.
