I use the USB delta Taq kit.  I like it because it allows either 32P end
labelled primer sequencing or 35S alpha incorporation sequencing (gives
beautiful results!).  Unlike the PCR sequencing kit from Promega (fmole),
the USB kit also gives you a choice between regular and deaza-dGTP
termination mixes.

I use automated cycle sequencing in an MJ research thermocycler in
microtiter plates.
I don't know if manual cycle sequencing would work as well, though.
