    Thanks Jeremy, Greg and Lu.
    
    In the bigger picture I am trying to lay the foundation for devising a
    method of using the practice bubble, or a sextant like the Navy Mark V
    that can see the horizon, as crude dip meter (from a stable platform.)
    
    I see the first step as calibrating the bubble error from a natural
    horizon. More on that later under a separate subject heading.
