    Re: Bubble Sextant

    Hi and welcome to the list.
    
    I'm curious if the aircraft you fly have a dome fitted for celestial
    navigation (which would usually include a hook to hang the bubble
    sextant from). Otherwise you're probably going to have to determine the
    refraction correction through the windscreen yourself (seems like I
    read somewhere that WWII bomber navigators had to do that themselves
    too (or at least confirm prior calculations), so maybe that's a
    starting point for your research?).
    
    Good luck and keep us posted on how your project progresses.
