    Hello Dan:
     
    I found your comment regarding a sextant bubble attachment for a marine sextant very interesting.  I mostly use an artificial horizon or limit my CN to coastal locations.I have an Astra with a practice bubble. I'd be interested in purchasing a quality bubble attachment . When you say 'search on ebay etc"; is there a particular product or "name" or description I should use.
     
    Your help is most appreciated. Thank you.

    Bruce

    Alan, The results could be much the same given a bubble attachment on the marine sextant. I've got a Plath and can obtain the same or better accuracy at times. The aircraft bubbles are available via the net (ebay etc) and are very cost effective and is why I use them ( also fun to repair and get back into working order(.
