    If you are willing to spend as much as 400$ or more, there is no question that you should get a new one. A new ASTRA IIIB is the best value for money in this price range.
    Good luck

    I have been pondering the purchase of a sextant and I think the ASTRA IIIB Sextant
    seems to be a good value. However I have been tracking some used models that
    have sold recently on E-bay. They have been selling for around $400.00. It seem that
    I might as well buy a new one. For the 20% differential I get to choose the type I want
    and they is no question about how the instrument has been handled or it's condition.
    Am I missing something? I understand the laws of supply and demand. Having tried
    to purchase something on E-bay a while back and getting burned, I'm still gun shy.
    Comments, thoughts. Are there other sources for used sextants I should be looking at?
    Thank you,
    Guy
    we will get to the whole mirror VS. the traditional mirror next.
