    My homemade octant for reenactments....
    From: Greg B

    Hi All,
          My name is Greg and I used to post to this list about 5 years ago.
    I do a lot of rev war reenacting and portray a surveyor. I also have
    keen interest in celestial and built this octant to work into my talks
    and demos about "science in the age of enlightenment" I have recently
    retired from engineering and now have more 'puttering time' so I am
    dusting off my celestial skills. I am also a sailor of a Catalina 28 - but
    strictly coastal - pilotage navigation in the long island sound so I do
    a lot of
    'back yard navigation' (i.e. practice on shore) I just purchased a Luna
    sextant circa 1981 off of ebay - I'm hoping it's as good as the pictures
    look
    I also have a Davis Mk 25 to do coastal 3 point fix s with. Any suggestions
    or comments on any this would be most welcome.
    ~Greg
