    Let us hope he is not trying to view the sun. I may well be wrong, but
    to my eye he does not have any shades in place!
    
    As to left eye dominant, I'm am just *barely* right-eye dominant. I do
    my observations left eyed. At the present my left eye has better vision,
    but when I started my right had better vision. After hundreds of
    observations I discovered my left-eye sights had significantly better
    precision and accuracy. Perhaps do to astigmatisms a right angles to
    each other from eye to eye.
    
    I also prefer using the left eye as the sextant blocks the sun and I can
    usually shoot with both eyes open, which some seem to believe is
    beneficial from a safety standpoint--especially on a smaller vessel.
