I Wws using my Rude Starfinder the other day which prompted some questions concerning the ingenious device.
Does anyone know who invented it (Rude?) and when?
Did it significantly change the way celestial was performed at sea? Were navigators more inclined to observe morning sights vs. evening sights prior to the Rude Starfinder due to the fact that they could identify the constellations prior to morning twighlight?
