    A problem lies in the logic of the question.  In management they say that if 
    two people think just alike, one is reduntant and of little value.
    
    If it were possible to accomplish comparable precision without a sextant as 
    with,  why would we even need or want a sextant.
    
    So the short answer to this version of your question must be no.
