    In my naive innocence, I have taken bubble sextants, marine sextants
    and theodolites as carry-on luggage on flights within the UK, to
    several countries in Europe, to Egypt and South Africa and to the
    United States. I never had any problems. Once the scanner operatives
    were convinced that it was not a bomb, they quickly lost interest.
    
    Ken's idea of carrying a published description of the instrument,
    with a picture, is a good one. I will definitely do that in future.
