    First sights

    Thanks to everyone for the great information.  Took my new sextant to
    the lake sat morning and took some sights before the clouds rolled in
    and the snow descended.  after using HO 299 for the calculations I
    ended up between 2 - 5 miles from where the GPS said I was standing on
    the shore.  Had to use dip short calculations as the lake was 1.2 miles
    wide in the direction of the sights.  Overall it was great fun to
    reduce the sun and see what things looked like in the sextant.  I still
    need to understand the filters better, as well as need LOTS more
    practice.  My 15 yr old daughter who was recording info for me enjoyed
    taking some sights as well.  Actually she turned out to be the closest
    once all the calculations were done.
