    Re: Butterfly Bris Prototype

    Hewitt,
    
    The Bris Mini Sextant is no longer made. Once in awhile one will pop
    up on Ebay. I make mine from microscope slides using a standard glass
    cutter. I made a pair of Butterfly Bris in an hour and a half. If you
    are handy then try and make one. I'll give you one of my home made
    ones if you contact me off list with a mailing address.

    images. A pair of Butterflies can fit in a 35mm film case just as the 
    original Bris can. I have selected a double waterproof 35mm film case which 
    holds the pair of Butterflies in one side and a folded 8"x11" photocopy of 
    the Pub.249 sun perpetual almanac and sight reduction formulas in the other 
    side.
