    Re: LED for Marine Sextant

    Instead of soldering LEDs onto  a sextant...one can also buy a tiny LED light like the "Photon" micro-lights, and some of those come with clips so they can be attached to the bill of a baseball cap, etc. and used hands-free. There are also LED "ring" lights, similar in size but with a plastic "ring" so you can slide it on a finger and have the LED illuminate whatever your hand is pointing at.
    OK, not as elegant as converting your sextant lighting but a bit simpler for those who aren't soldering whizzes.<G>
