    Comments. Longer time intervals indicate that I was more
    careful in my measurements than last time. Also I followed the
    advise to hold the sextant in the most convenient position:
    After catching the bodies close enough (without the scope,
    sextant upside down), I installed the scope and inverted my
    sextant so that the Moon was visible through the horizon glass.
    I had to use my intermediate filter (grey) to decrease the
    moon glare. The moon was very sharp with this filter.
    Without the filter, the star just disappeares when I bring it
    close enough to the moon.
    
    Alex.
