    Re: Air travel with a sextant
    From: Jim Thompson

    When I flew to the Caribbean earlier this year I decided to pack the sextant in my main luggage, rather than worry about carry-on, and had no problems.  I used a hard plastic Storm case shown here

    that I modified to hold the sextant.  One problem with such cases is that they can be so air-tight that change in air pressure is a problem.  That case has a pressure-equalizer built into it.
