    Re: Astro COmpass Manual on line?

    Try Celestaire. They continue to sell them.
    
    Simply stated from memory. Set the sun's declination for the date of the
    observation That would be by using one of the little knobs. Then rotate the
    base, and sight the sun. A shadow line should point to North on the compass
    rose. I remember there was an upper scale and a lower scale on the turnable
    section, but forget their respective purpose. I do remember that it was
    critically important that the sun compass was housed in its own very special
    bracket which needs to be clamped so that it is perfectly horizontal when in
    flight.
    
    Take heed, my memory may be wrong. Haven't seen one in years.
