    Re: IE determination Freiberger Yacht Sextant

    Hello Tony,

    Using Jupiter for IE determination worked fine.
    Easyer and much faster then using the Sun.
    IE was 1,2' so no problem with this value.
    Thanks for the tip.
    Most books advise the Horizon (not visible here in the backyard)
    I can cycle in 10 minutes to the seashore, but the horizon  there
    is just above sandbanks, with the most common South-Westerly winds
    the waves are breaking on the sandbanks gives no straight horizon line.
    Or books say use the Sun. But that is not always covenient I discovered.

    regards
    HermanD
