    Re: Leveling of artificial horizon

    Hi Alan

    The reflective surface need not be liquid.  You can also use a mirror to reflect light.  Consequently, Artificial Horizons can also be made from a mirror.    The surface of the mirror is brought parallel to the horizon by two levels (or one used twice) placed orthagonally.   Look up Freiberger Artifical Horizon on google for one such example

     I have seen several references to the "leveling" of an artificial horizon. Water among other liquids can be utilized in creating an atrificial horizon, and water seeks it's own level, or is self leveling. Regarding this, it would seem that the "leveling" of an artificial horizon is not required. Am I misunderstading something here?
