    Re: Hello and a question about polarizer sun filters

    Well I guess it depends on how you define local!   I am certainly regional. I live about 3.5 hours away +- a couple in SW Vermont Just north of Bennington in Shaftsbury. I would really enjoy meeting you and learning a bit more of the fine points of the Mk2 sextant!   This weekend is out but I could drive down the following weekend or perhaps after the Holidays maybe in January sometime? Saturdays work best. for me but I am flexible.

    Wayne, I just re-read your initial message and saw that you are "scheduled to take the introductory class that Frank Reed holds at Mystic". Very nice. I look forward to meeting you! Until then, are you local? Near Rhode Island? I would be happy to look at the shades on your sextant if you want to swing by Jamestown for a few minutes. I, too, have a USN Mk. 2 sextant available. For another data point, I have used sextants with rotatable polarizing shades many times, and I am not blind yet.
