    Re: Air travel with a sextant

    Probably a Pelican case or similar. Pelican has earned their reputation the
    hard way: Their products simply WORK. By all means, by a Pelican case, large
    enough to provide 1 better 2 inches of foam all around the sextant. Or
    perhaps a bit larger to hold your complete nav kit in it. Celestaire no
    doubt is familiar with how to set up the foam and size the box, but Pelican
    cases are widely available in several colors and a number of sizes. The last
    of the C.Plath sextants were shipped in either Pelicans, or something that
    is similar to them. Beats all hell out of a heavy wood case, although of
    course it won't have the "hand grasp" to hold the sextant by the arm, like
    the C&P cases do.
