    Huub, Igor
    That’s a very nice design, though placing the Sun at the top of the advert alongside “Einfach Lernen” is not the ‘brightest’ idea when the sextant has no shades.  I did note that the small print says “Hinweis: Der Sextant dient ausschließlich dem Erlernen der Sextantbenutzung und darf nicht zu Navigationszwecken eingesetzt werden. Höhenwinkelmessungen der Sonne sind NICHT möglich!”, but how many people read to the bottom of ads these days.  DaveP
