    Alex:

    If Dr. Morris's patients got anywhere near the care he seems to lavish on old sextants, they would have been well cared for indeed. Lucky them.

    Otherwise, re what appears the ONGOING production of sextants, they used to make good ones in the U.S. too, I might well be an anachronism, in some ways similar to the late William F. Buckley Jr., but not really approaching him in any respect, still it's good to hear that the things are still being made, notwithstanding the wonders of GPS and electronic navigation.
