    Re: Timing Error in Sights

    Thanks Jared,
    
    It wasn't just the mechanics of recording the time.  It was also
    making an accurate decision as to when coincidence was achieved.  I
    resorted to the trick of waiting for the sun to just touch itself in
    the artificial horizon.  Against a natural horizon, one would wait
    for the sun to rise above it or settle to it, when shooting the lower
    limb.
    
    I still haven't gotten very good with stars and planets in this
    regard; those might be a bit easier with the advent of spring!
    
    Fred
