    Re: The Rude Star Finder and teaching stars

    Frank:

    Re various versions of the Rude Star Finder (2102-D), as I understand, they used to be "GI", but no more. They are available commercially. Strikes me that the 2102-D is easier to use than other "planispheres", but possibly Im not understanding the things.

    The case mine came in is labeled United States Power Squadrons, and below that heading Star Finder. At the bottom of the "Instruction sheet", quite brief but adequate if one reads the thing, I eventually did, is the following. Murphy was so correct.

    "Parts of H.O. 2102-D and pervious models are not interchangeable because of difference in scale."
