    May I recommend a repeating circle of reflection instead?  Which one of us wouldn't want one!

    Maybe you should have a talk with a manufacturer (probably in some part of the 
    world where labor is cheap). Why not make some? Even just in the cel nav 
    enthusiast market, I bet you could sell a thousand of them if the price was 
    right (under $50??). I like your "flat Bygrave" solution very much but it 
    lacks that difficult-to-quantify tactile pleasure that comes from working 
    with a real device. And of course, a "real" Bygrave is something that one can 
    show on a shelf. It's a conversation piece, even if it's never used at sea.
