    Re: Bubble sextant instructions

    Dear Capt. Rodaway,
    We have a copy of the manual for your sextant for sale at $3.25 plus postage.
    The only difference in working a sight with it is that since you are using a
    bubble instead of the natural horizon, you need not account for your height of
    eye above the horizon.
