    Re: Most commonly used/preferred sextant among NavList members

    Hello Brian:
     
    What is the mini sextant called? How was it originally used?  Accuracy and readability? Very interesting and compact kit. 
     
    I just through away a watch (into a 5 ft snow bank)  which supposedly  received timing  signals........ waste of money because  it never worked consistently .
     
    I’m going back to the $30-40 Casio “something or other”.  I’m currently using a $15 USD Timex that I correct against a time from my computer.
     
    What is make of your watch?
     
    Regards,

    Bruce

    Hello,

       My complete astro kit measures 6"x4"x2", smaller than a mobile phone 20 years ago.  Been everywhere.
