    New Use For Sextant
    From: Dan Allen

    Last night we had a partial solar eclipse here in the Seattle Washington area.  I wanted to look at the eclipse so I used my Tamaya Jupiter sextant with a 7X scope and a dark gray filter and a green filter.  Worked great!  I had all of my family look through the sextant to view the eclipse.  I then had the idea to put my Kodak digital camera up to the sextant eyepiece and I took a couple of decent photos! 
    Any excuse to use my sextants... ;-)
