    Greg asked about the sextants and rete mailing lists, asking-
    "Do you have a link for the Sextants mailing list? That one sounds
    interesting, but couldn't find anything on a Google search.
    And I assume that "rete" refers to the Museum of the History of
    Science list
    about the history of scientific instruments:
    The sextants list is at Sextants@yahoogroups.com  . I no longer have
    any details about how to sign up. Traffic is very thin on it these
    It has a differtent emphasis to Nav-l, mainly catering for the
    interests of sextant collectors rather than users. It has been a good
    place to raise questions about authenticity, for example, but its
    members have avoided the technical stuff that many at Navlist go in
    for. Many Navlist members are signed up with the sextants list.
    Geg is right about the rete list. It seems mainly to operate as a link
    between curators of museums with a science-history bent. I find it
    useful, in that it reflects many of my own interests.
