    Hi Don

    I also found 5-profile.jpg (the second one) odd.  If you look closely, the telescope is angled slightly upwards from the horizon. 

    So apparently, he is not referencing the sun to the horizon AND his celestial object is not the sun. 

    At least he's holding the handle!

    What do you think he is pointing his sextant at in the second photo? From the shadows, it seems as though the sun is off to his right.
