    Re: Cassens & Plath versus C. Plath sextants

    The Cassen & Plath web sight shows many options that the C. Plath may not have offered.

    1. 2 styles of whole horizon mirrors.
    2. Adjustable Sun filters.
    3. Quick adjust for index error on the micrometer drum.
    4. White frame option.

    Both are very well made. One thing I don't like on both makes are the plastic micrometer drum release triggers which can be easily broken.

    Cassens & Plath versus C. Plath sextants
    From: Jackson McDonald

    What are the relative merits of Cassens & Plath versus C. Plath sextants?

    I was under the impression that Cassens & Plath was considered a somewhat better instrument, if the sextants are otherwise in comparable physical condition. Now I am wondering, however, whether my impression is based on fact or bias or personal preference.

    Any thoughts from the group?
