    Navigation instruments from Paris, Maskelyne

    if anybody wants, login to "http://www.xdrive.com" under the login
    "navigation@seznam.cz" (XDRIVE allows only valid e-mail addresses as logins,
    as you probably know), password "celnav".
    You have 60 MB photos of some historical navigation instruments kept in the
    Marine Museum in Paris (directory "Musee de la Marine") there. I tried to
    create the logical sequence of them from the nocturnal and the Jacob staff
    to repeating lunar circles.
    Of course, I am not a professional photographer and I didn't have the
    instruments available "au plain air".
    At the end of this week, I shall obtain some copies of Maskelyne's less
    known works printed in the 18th century. It would be interesting to chat
    about them a bit in the list.
