    Dear John,
    
    I hope you did not miss my previous message
    with a table of angles measured with my Bris-made
    Bris sext.

    You mean you made the whole device of the transparent glass?
    This can be dangerous.
    You have to use VERY reliable sunglasses to look at the Sun directly.
    The "factory-made" Bris has onje of its glasses shaded,
    so that you can use it without sunglasses.
    
    Alex.
    
    P.S. Do you know of any non-expensive source of good quality
    filter-glass?
