    How to Use a Plastic Sextant
    From: Scott O´Connor
    Date: 2011 Jan 14, 16:45 -0800

    I recently received the David Burch book on how to use a plastic sextant, as a gift. This is a unique book with lots of very useful information and instructions about using a sextant, much of which translates very well to the understanding and use of metal sextants also. I know many disparage plastic sextants, but I have no financial tie to the book, and would highly recommend it. It has excellent information on the how and why of index correction, as well as a terrific review on Sextant piloting. I use a Davis 15 as well as an Astra IIIB, and have been well pleased. Interested to hear what others think, Thanks, Scott
