    Dr. K�berer
    Lacking access to the referenced publication, I am somewhat at a loss.
    I too am very interested in how this device functions.  Would you kindly provide the group
    with an explanation or an image of the article.
    Best Regards

    DEVICE EBAY Item number: 370193239339
    This is an "Astronomisches Rechenger�t" made by Zeiss during WW II. You can
    find a detailed description  by David Charlwood in the "Navigator's
    Newsletter" No. 76 (Summer 2002), p. 10 - 19. Its successor, the ARG 3, was
    still manufactured in East Germany in the 60s and its use taught in the
    standard East German manual.
    The price of the item on ebay is outrageous in my opinion; a similar item
    went for less than 200 Euros a year or 2 ago (though that was underprized, I
    think). If you want to have a look at one visit the Royal Navy Submarine
    Collections (shelf No. Q35/27/84). The NMM also owns one, but it is in
    By the way, whatever happened to the Navigator's Newsletter? The last issue
    I received was "Spring 2008" and never heard anything afterwards.
