    Re: Celestial in "All Is Lost"

    During the movie, as soon as I saw that sealed cardboard shipping box of a size which I knew could hold a sextant, I made a little mental note to look for the Celestaire logo. No such luck. But when the wooden case emerged from the shipping box, there was no doubt what it was. :)

    I have looked in the usual places and also some unusual and illegal places, but I have not found any clip from the movie showing the sextant. But there's evidence that there are copies floating about, so I expect I should be able to get a few screen caps of those scenes soon.

    Here's an entertaining comparison of "Gravity" and "All Is Lost":
