    Re: What is a good sextant to buy?

    It is indeed a great sextant, but, as you wrote, be careful when buying on Ebay, especially when the seller is in India... I bought mine there, and several small parts (like screws and mirror adjustment screws), not visible on the pictures, were missing... And the tools were missing too.

    I thank again Bill Morris for helping me bringing this sextant back into perfect condition !

    One additional thought on purchasing an SNO-T sextant on e-bay. Be sure that the sextant includes all the tools. The mirror adjustment wrench in particular.
