    Many Thanks to everyone for the welcome.  I find the challenge of cel.
    extremely exciting and have been working through sun sight problems in
    getting started.  I purchased an Astra IIIB and this weekend when I get
    out to the lake will be taking the first actual sights.  Having just
    received my sextant on Monday in the mail I have noticed that making
    the adjustments seems to depend upon the distance of the object.  If I
    am adjusting basis the back of the couch I look at the rooftop across
    the street and things are out of adjustment.  Is there a certain
    distance you should use for making these adjustments?  figured I would
    just do it at the lake for sure.
