    Ditto here.  The attachment to the frame is via a nylon cord lock/wrap tie.
    (One of those gizmos from Radio Shack et al that will slide done to a a
    secure fit, but will not release without cutting it.)  To minimize abrasion
    from hard nylon against the aluminum frame, I picked up a bit of soft tubing
    from a model shop and slipped it over the nylon-wrap-tie thingy before
    attaching to the sextant.
    
    If not OCD, pieces of soft synthetic cord and a sheet bend could work as
    well with the camera strap.
