    Re: Star-star distances for arc error

    Hi
    I'm new to the list, been lurking for about 6 mo... AND KNOW NOTHING!  I am 
    intrigued by the talk about verniers, as I recently purchased a russian 
    sextant and it had now vernier, but it does have a nice magnifying glass over 
    the arc.  I took it to a jeweler friend of mine and had a vernier put on it 
    (he said sheepishly).  It seems to work great but I must admit that my 
    magnified judgment about the value is dead on with the vernier.  So no real 
    reason to add the vernier, but as a neophyte I thought I needed it.  I 
    thought those Russians didn't know what they  were doing... But of course it 
    was me who did not know what he was doing!!  I suppose much like antiques 
    road show... the sextant was worth $10,000 but is now worth only $0.10 ;-)
