    Celestaire Sextant Case
    From: Robert Eno
    Date: 2006 Sep 1, 12:02 -0500
    Some time ago, we had a discussion about the plastic bullet proof case offered by Celestaire.
    The main discussion on this subject matter was how the sextant is secured in the box and which parts of the sextant come into contact with the foam in the lid. One of the posters indicated that he had modified his case to include foam blocks which come into contact with the frame of the sextant, rather than the horizon mirror frame. He was going to post a photo of his set up.
    I have lost that posting and cannot remember the name of the fellow who posted it.
    Buddy, if you are out there, do you have a photograph of your set up that you would be willing to share with me?  I love my sextant case and I am pretty much satisfied with how I have it set up, but on further examination, it does indeed appear that if the case happens to be upside down position (highly unlikely if I have anything to say about it) or even in the carry position, the horizon mirror frame is likely the pressure point for the lid. I like the idea of modifying it so that the pressure is on the frame. But I would like to see your setup before I start fumbling around in my mad scientist workshop.
