    Re: What is a good sextant to buy?

    There is a lot to what Phillip says. The best one is the one you use.

    I have an Astra IIIB and a high end C&P Horizon model (white).  The C&P fit/finish, precision, materials, combos of shades, lighting etc are wonderful.  But the C&P's weight is a problem for me when I'm out shooting for a long time or doing lunars which often require holding the sextant in odd angles. For me, quite fatiguing to use for long periods.

    I find myself using the Astra more and more. It's a very good value for the money costing only half what the C&P goes for.
