    Re: Freiberger artificial horizon

    ouch indeed.  although, perhaps not too outrageous when compared to the
    $5000 theodolites in the distributor's catalog.
    although, their artificial horizon was interesting.  just now I made one
    like it using a couple carpenters' levels and my wife's hand mirror.  shot
    the moon with it in my front yard, seems to work almost OK (intercepts were
    not as good as with my bubble horizon, and definitely needs a better
    mirror).  I wonder why theirs is $450, maybe I am in the wrong business?
    these are the good old days
