    Ideal Conditions
    From: Robert Eno

    I'd like to pose a question to the experienced seafarers and navigators on this list.
     
    What atmospheric and weather conditions would you consider to be ideal for taking sextant observations at sea? Why?
     
    What atmospheric and weather conditions would you consider to yield observations of questionable value? Why?
     
    I am excluding sea state here, but for argument's sake, let us assume that the seas are flat calm. 
     
     
    I have few questions to add to this, but I want to wait and see what kind of anwsers come across to the first question.  I can explain the reasons for my questions as the discusssion (hopefully) moves along.
