    'The  BBC TV Documentary ‘Britain’s Largest Warship s02e03’ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uye3En8jam0  (at 19 minutes to 21 minutes) shows  Celestial Navigation training in the British Royal Navy.'

    .....That's my sextant, or at least one of the collection - check out the cheapo fat x6 Celestron monocular on a classy recent Cassens and Path frame, completely unsuitable for trainees, except perhaps for sun sights from the bridge wing of an aircraft carrier .... 

    Good navigating
