    Re: Integrating marine sextant

    Alex,
    You say that you interpret "Integriruiushchii Morskoi Sextan" as
    �Integrating marine sextant.� That is good enough for me. This is now the
    first one of its kind that I have seen. I wonder why you would want this
    type instead of the more traditional instrument. This would work without a
    visible horizon?
