    Greg and other interesting the future of Celestial Navigation and study.
    Greg Your Idea of the add on for the 2102-D with 2 minute Star Finder is a very interesting.
    I may see if anyone in the business is interested in the add on, and if it can be market.
    I have a little problem, in that I wanted to make available a cheaper model than the 2102-D
    that is made for not only the Navigator, but the 10 year old kid for Astronomy. I think that you will agree the mid-grade Scout, sky watcher. Are much more in number, and can work the 2 minute star finder, than the guy that go to sea with the 2102-D.
    The ease of working and learning Astronomy, Navigation with the 2 minute will influence a whole new group of people that cannot and will not use the 2102-D. David Burch in his well written “THE STAR FINDER BOOK “impressed me! Said, among other things “We hope this booklet might add new interest to this valuable tool. The star finder is a handy gadget. It could be especially valuable to amateur astronomers or anyone else who spends much time out of doors looking at the stars, wondering who is who, and where the planets are, and so forth.” He is correct! To want this large group to join in on finding of stars by bearing and height rather than relative to star to star. (My interpretation.) I think that the 2102-D is too difficult and the need of the Almanac holds back the new comer. Make things cheaper and easy will get that new large group interested in Astronomy and Navigation.
