    Sextant Davis
    From: Guillaume Lancelin
    Date: 2000 Dec 07, 6:10 AM

    Hi! I'm just starting celestial nav, and I bought a Davis Mk15 to train
    from the ground before trying from a bouncing boat. No problem with the
    sextant (I mean, I'm a beginner, so I don't need a very accurate one), but
    I have problems when aiming at the sun and going down to catch the
    horizon: the sun appears in the tube, above the mirror. Paintful! and
    dangerous too. What's wrong? I'm thinking of sticking lots of black
    celotape around the filters...
    Guillaume.
