    Re: Sextant camera: TV viewing

    Jim,

    If you can get your hands on a digital single lens reflex camera with video capability then this can be used on a sextant with the scope removed. One hand for the sextant and one for the camera. A bit of a trick but it does work.

    Sextant camera: TV viewing

    Passing this along... I have already answered with a quick webcam suggestion, but any ideas would be welcome, I am sure!

    Ens. James Bruce asks:
    "where could I find a sextant that I would be able to plug into a television monitor in order to display what is being seen through the [sextant] eyepiece?
    I am the assistant navigator on board the Coast Guard EAGLE and I am looking around for an accessory or specific marine sextant that I could use as a teaching aid. Most of my searches have been fruitless, so any help would be appreciated!

    Very Respectfully,
    James Bruce
    Ensign, Assistant Navigator
    US Coast Guard Barque EAGLE"
