    Bruce also mentioned using a tin can to slip over the sleeve.  Not
    having a can large enough, I modified that by using a plastic
    frozen-orange-juice can.  It's slit on one side and can be opened to
    slip onto the sleeve.  It closes tightly enough to have no danger of
    slipping off and can fit over winter coats or a bare arm.  I tape paper
    to it.   It will slip over the arc of the sextant in the box for
    transport, with no danger to delicate components.  Very handy.
