    Re: (Re: Navigation in Fog)SKY COMPASS
    From: Gary LaPook

    I balanced the polarizing camera filter on top of the sighting vanes one
    the astrocompass. I cut out a piece of cellophane and put it on top of
    the filter. I put a small mirror on the base of the astrocompass to
    allow me to look up though the filter at the zenith. I had to try
    different alignments of the cellophane to maximize the zenith light
    shift affect. I hope this helps.
