    Re: horizon mirrors: was [NAV-L] Question about Davis Mk 25 sextant beam converger

    That's a good price even at the "buy it now" price.
    A new IIIB deluxe model goes for around $500.00. The extra horizon mirror
    around $70.00. The tube around $15.00. The bubble attachment around $125.00.
    Around $720.00 for everything if you bought it new.
    Nice deal.

    Hi George:
    Thanks for the offer of assistance.
    There's a nice-looking Astra IIIB Deluxe up for auction on E-Bay
    (http://tinyurl.com/ekpzd) that looks like a pretty good deal (includes
    bubble horizon, both full-field and split-horizon mirrors, etc.), but
    it's run for several days and absolutely *nobody* has bid on it yet. I
    was wondering if anyone on the Nav-L list had any experience with this
    guy, or maybe this was an Astra model to avoid?
    I'm looking to upgrade from the plastic Davis sextant to something more
    professional (probably an Astra, since I don't do CelNav for a living),
    and since they're in such high demand I was just curious why nobody had
    bid on this particular one yet. Feel free to bid on it yourself if
    you'd like to, if it's a good deal for you then that's a fair trade-off
    for your offer of off-list help.  :-)
