    Just by the wildest of coincidences, I just walked back into the house
    and my astrocompass is still set up on a tripod in the back yard.
    
    It looks like the one one ebay has been modified with a small
    telescope attached to the alidade and it looks like the telescope has
    a small level bubble on top. If you are thinking of bidding on this
    one note that the photos do not show a mounting base that you would
    also need if you are planning to use the astrocompass. It is a
    separate tubular pedastal with three mounting holes on the flange on
    the base that is mounted in the aircraft and the astrocompass slides
    into it. I think I might have an extra one around here somwhere but I
    am not sure. Celestair might have them also.

    The only think I can think of is that someone may have attached a level to it 
    for land surveying.
