    Sextant index error and distance
    From: Debra Hillman
    Date: 2014 Apr 7, 12:08 +1030
    Hi, I've been trying to correct errors on my astra 111b.When i got it new i found a mirror screw very loose so i thought that was why i it had so many correctable errors ,as the certificate said it had none.Anyway since then i've been using the tangent screw going back and forwards to both stars and horizon for micro adjustments.Now what i need to know is, when you are looking at an object which isnt the horizon,example something closer like a rock ,a tree, i get a step when i look at them ,but my horizon is fine even after rocking .The arc is zero      .Do i have more errors if this is happening? I would apreciate your views and help with this.Thanks.
