    Re: Wanted: Small Craft Precision Sextant from Francis Barker

    Back in 1988 I bought one of these. Problem was the vernier was not properly cut and there was no way you could make accurate determination of the minutes of arc. I got it from Celestaire and they sent me out another one. Same problem. Send 'em both back. Not worth even 200 cents, unfortunately.
