    Greg,

    Yes, but there is another strange feature: the bubble looks like a ring
    indeed, but the ring is excentric!
    I suppose you align the Sun with the outer circle, ignoring the inner one.
    In my sextant the bubble looks  like a good, concentric ring,
    I make the INNER circle slightly larger than the Sun, and align
    the Sun with the inner circle.
    
    Perhaps I am doing wrong, and I have to make smaller bubble,
    ignore the inner circle and align with the outer one??
    
    Alex.
