    Re: Bubble Sextant

    There is an MA-2 for sale on ebay now and these don't come along
    often. The MA-2 was the penultimate developement of the handheld
    bubble sextant. It is the Kollsman periscopic sextant without the
    periscope and it has the same averager. See here for more
    information:  http://home.earthlink.net/%7Es543t-24dst/airnav/index.html
