    Re: Hybrid artificial horizon

    Very interesting!  I am an AH user because I do not have easy access to an  E - N - W horizon. I do not own a tribach and assumed that one would be outside my price range. Out of interest I did some googling and much to my surprisse discovered that they are affordable. In fact for about what I paid for Burton's Tables I could own one. But I do not own a theodolite tripod........

    It seems to me there are several options - (a) search online for a second hand theodolite tripod   (b) buy a camera tripod or (c) rest the tribach on the picnic table.

    Would either b or c be feasible?

    I should point out that with my sextant my sights are  usually accurate to about 0.5'.  I would like to set up this hybrid AH not for arc second accuracy but so that I could take star an moon sights. Maybe even venus and mars.
