    Time recording, was: Satr-to-star

    Dear Jared,
    I suspect that even my own Casio watch ($25) might have this
    feature, but I lost the manual:-)
    Anyway, there so many buttons and they are so small:-(
    My main problem with time recording is putting my eyeglasses
    on and off: I need eyeglasses to SEE the time on my Casio
    watch, to do time
    or ANY recording wharsoever, but I have to take them
    off when I look into my sextant scope:-)
    Forseeing some comments:
    yes, I read Bruce Bauer about eyeglasses:-)
    I still have more than 6 months to think about this problem
    before I can
    possibly go to the sea with my sextant:-)
    > The trick is to memorize exactly which button to press,
    Yes, this is the trick:-)
    I am always afraid to RESET my watch by pressing the wrong button:-)
    Actually I am contemplating buying a real genuine Russian marine
    mechanical stop-watch of huge diameter,
    with a split second hand,
    of the sort
    you can see on p. 141 in Bauer.
    It is only about $120 from a Russian seller I trust,
    a real thing made of metal,
    much better value than a $250 software:-)
    A much more ambitious project is to buy a genuine chronometer
    made by Mercer. But the price sems to have jumped up
    last summer on e-bay:-(
    And I have no assistant:-(
