    Re: Best way to record time for solo sights

    I use my iphone.  My voice memo app works in the background once you turn it on.  I then use a UTC time app set to night mode.  I take the sight, mark, look at the time and say it along with the sextant reading.  I hold the phone in the hand that adjusts the sextant.   When I finish my run I just play it while back transcribing it.   It also would be easy enough to rig up a wrist mount for the inside of your wrist.
