    Hi Herman,
    It is my old Lokata 7 RDF which has a really good compass, reading to 0.25 of 
    a degree, but at sea, 1 degree is doing well. I liberated a folding "make up" 
    mirror from my wife and adjust the angle to give a reflected image of the sun 
    or star onto the compass card. Works very well.
    Francis

    Hello Francis,
    How does your "specially adapted Az compass " looks like? I have found a 
    compass that is usable till about H=60°. Above that height it is a guess 
    every time.
    Regards,
    HermanD
