    A Sextant For The 21St Century
    From: Greg Rudzinski
    Date: 2007 Nov 15, 12:05 -0800

    21st Century Sextant Specs:
    
    1. Blue tooth sensors on the micrometer drum sending to a laptop with
    barometer, thermometer, chronometer, chart plotter, and celestial
    functions.
    
    2. Carbon fiber frame.
    
    3. Titanium arc.
    
    4. Ergonomic adjustable grip.
    
    5. Variable 1.5 to 6x42mm flat field nitrogen filled scope with
    fluxgate compass.
    
    This model would plot instantaneous LOP,s on a laptop with the press
    of a button on the micrometer drum.
    
    Better yet would be a blue tooth micrometer drum pick-up add on for
    older sextants. GPS is blue toothed why not a sextant?
