    I take my 5851 with me almost every time I go fly.95% of the time, it goes through the Xray with no questions asked. If they do ask about it, I tell them it is a camera. If I say "sextant", all the TSA idiots hear is "sex", and now I'm the freak. They are, for the most part too busy shaking down the WWII vets and their 90 yr. old wives, seizing toothpaste from travelers, and salivating over your naked Xray. When you can interrupt their conversions with their co-workers over the latest Jay Z rap lyrics, tell them "Thank You for keeping America safe."

    BTW, I am now consistently about 10 miles off of GPS position. Now I have to nail down a trend that will give me a personal/sextant correction.
