    If anyone is in doubt as to the origin of the Soviet SNO-M sextant, this 
    interesting picture of a C Plath sextant in use should dispel it. Plath 
    satellite factories in Zoppot, north of Danzig and Guttstadt in the centre of 
    East Prussia, were abandoned to the Soviet advance in the closing stages of 
    WWII.
    
    The SNO-M differs in only very minor respects from the Plath instrument shown. 
    The pressure die-cast alloy frame appears to have been made in the same dies.
