    Re: Not another Plath Gyro-Sextant question?

    The Jerchow book, from which the Knierim page takes the text, also has "KS 30" in the German and English version. But that seems to  be a misreading indeed: if you look closely at the pictures in Willem Mörzer Bruijns' "Sextants at Greenwich"  ( pages 233-237) you can see that it is really a "D"  - the left side of the figure is flat, not round.
