    Re: Gyro sextant

    Giro (of a sextant) rotates at hundreds revolutions per minute??
    Seems too slow to me.
    
    Perhaps thousands?
    Or hundreds per second?
    
    Alex.

    Bill, there is a phrase in your article:
    
    As the gyro rotates at hundreds of time a minute, the image projected into the 
    sextant flickers only a little.
    
    I'd rather made it:
    
    As the gyro rotates at hundreds revolutions per minute, the image projected 
    into the sextant flickers only a little.
    
    The rest of the text is OK to me.
    
    Warm regards,
    
    Tony
