    Gary:

    While the following might be delving into "ancient history", looking at the photos I wonder as to the following,your set-up provided nothing in the way of sun shades. Did you rely entirely on your sextants sun shades?

    I get good results using a Davis AH, water in their dish, have not gotten satisfactory results, possibly my fault, with a mirror AH. I use theatrical lighting gels as sun shades, along with those on my sextant, I expect that leveling might be my problem.
