    Re: Sextant with an umbrella
    From: Rommel John Miller

    But Frank, given the Sextant book's website explanation, could the
    "umbrella" be something that makes the sextant a dip measuring device?
    
    As such not so much an umbrella, but an additional or extended index
    mirror to catch rays from behind?
