    Re: Sextant Scope Parallelism (was Re : SNO-T Sextant)

    Maybe I jumped into this in the middle. But don�t you swing the arc to get
    the point of contact. Does it matter then if the scope is out a littlie bit
    out of parallel? The image is in the horizon mirror no mater where the scope
    points.
    Just a little more confused then usual,
