    I've also noticed that some Plath sextants don't  include a little vernier
    scale for reading off tenths of minutes. But in  practice, I find that this
    matters relatively little. I can read to 0.2 minutes  (which is as good as it
    gets, in my practical experience) with or without the  vernier scale.
