    see fine detail as I used to have.
    Can your scale printer program be altered to produce a scale larger than you
    used for your octant? I'm thinking that if I built myself an octant,
    sextant, etc., about 50% bigger than normal, I'd actually be able to read
    the scales when I want to.
    I've never used a sextant before and it would be fun to learn.
    Many thanks.
