    Re: New ways to create false horizons?

     Pete,

    I have gone low teck to make my AH.  On a camera tripod I mounted a board, horzontal, and put a clear plastic tube filled with water in a "U" shape.  Into the two ends I put a bright blue plastic balls.  The board is adjusted to be eye height.  Stepping back about 10 feet I can line up my sextant with the two balls and that becomes my horizon.

    I find that it works well.  I live in Nebraska so not near big water.

    John H.
