    Alex,
    
    This was on land.  There is nothing in my notes about the big jump from
    5/10 to 5/11, sorry.  Clearly, something happened, such as cleaning the
    mirror or bumping the sextant or the mirror adjustment knobs (the Husun
    has exposed mirror adjustment knobs).  By 5/12, it is clear I adjusted
    it again.  Often, I note these things, but not this time.
    
    Here are my only set of data taken on board a vessel underway.  Note
    that the times are approximate here; I use them to group observations
    for averaging.

    Clearly I need more practice at sea! :)
