I was playing a little with Python and made a script that generates latitude templates for Polhemus celestial computer. The original ones are made for 1:5'000'000 scale but I decided to made 1:2'500'000, too. Below I attach some chosen latitudes. I am thinking where to place tics marks for latitude: either odd or even whole degrees of longitude. This should change about 30°. Any critical remarks are welcome.
For my own I made replecement for the original one using 2-3mm thick plastic and they work just fine.
