    Jim,

    The clear sides on the Plath hybrid whole horizon is suppose to allow for a better look at the horizon during late twilight when dim stars such as Polaris are bright enough to see. It would be interesting to know how such a horizon mirror performs if anyone on the List has had experience with one.

    Greg:

    I don't see how it could help with a dim star. There I want a full silvered mirror. What I'm proposing is, instead of a sharp dividing line between silvered and clear, have a gradual change. Thus you could move the image laterally for best viewing.
