    Flattery will get you everywhere Bruce. Thanks for the kind thoughts. Does this mean that there will be a titanium sextant under the tree this December ;-)
    Now I will have to live up to your accolades and start doing some lunars this winter!

    Someone else will have to throw cold water on Robert's titanium sextant dream. Never had anything to do with titanium myself. 

    I've had a special respect for Eno since the1990's, when we first corresponded. He was so keen he was taking his sextant and artificial horizon out in the sub-arctic winter nights to get observations. He must be a savvy outdoorsman, because he did it all without losing a single finger to the cold. Also, Robert was among the first to use my "Tables for Clearing the Lunar Distance," and wrote a helpful "Field Assessment" of them for the "Navigator's Newsletter."
