A few days ago Jackson McDonald and I were able to put a C.Plath Yachtsman to the test by observing the upper limb of the Moon from a pier near Port Canaveral. This version of Plath sextant is uniquely simple and compact with little compromising of precision. Bill Morris has a fantastic blog post on this model for anyone who has one of these or interested in getting one.
