    Alex,

    I use the Bris held in front of a telephoto lens. No need to wait for a special moment. Snap the shot then count pixels to the horizon. A different and unusual way to get a line of position.

    Greg,

    I have to say that I do not find this Bris very practical.
    It is rather a toy than a navigation device.
    The reason is that you have to wait for these pre-assigned moments,
    there are few of them during the day, and at these moments
    Sun can be obscured by a cloud, or you can be busy with something
    else, or just miss the moment.

    I am interested to hear from a list member who managed to
    gratuate his/her Bris sextant:-)

    Alex.
