    Accuracy question: kneeling or standing
    From: Greg Licfi

    Hi All,
    Accuracy question: Is it better to be kneeling or standing when using a AH on land?
    I attached a little sketch of what I am asking. I remember seeing a picture of
    something called an "explorers kit" from the 1890's or early 1900's it was basically
    just a AH pan & cover, a mercury flask and a sextant stand ( looked to be about 1 1/2 ft. high )
    I am not interested in using a mercury horizon - only ascertaining if closer is better in terms of
    accuracy; i.e.; the sextant stand, or kneeling.
    Thanks,
           ~Greg
