    Re: Backyard winter sextant observatory?

    All those glove tricks just don't work for me.  I like to take my time, I
    need reading glasses now, and have to juggle a flashlight and notebook.  No
    fun in winter.  I've tried it a bunch.
    
    Offlist someone sent me a URL for a local bubble supplier, but the
    refraction issue is too daunting.  It would vary too much over its surface,
    unless it was very expensive and optically optimized.
    
    Back to the hot rum, I guess.
