    Asbjorn is apparently using a Davis artificial horizon which is a tray for
    liquid with a cloche that can be covered with dark or clear glass, so I
    don't think that is the source of his mysterious (but apparently
    systematic) error. Hopefully Asbjorn will correct me if I'm mistaken about
    this.
