    Two more little "rules" for the game:
    1) The sextant case includes whatever you might want to include in a normal 
    sextant case including various optional filters, telescopes of various types, 
    tools and oils --all the usual things but NO electronics.
    2) The computer includes no functioning long-range communications hardware. It 
    cannot receive or transmit any radio signals, including GPS signals. It does, 
    however, keep time accurately (UT +/-1 second), like most any decent 
    And one non-rule:
    You do not have to use the sextant "as intended". If you wish, you may invoke 
    a "deus ex machina" solution and trade it to a passing flying saucer in 
    exchange for a free ride to the moon base. If you wish, you may use the 
    sextant to pound on the electronics until they start working again. But don't 
    count on any of us being impressed with such solutions! Just get yourself to 
    the Moon with that sextant, one way or another.
