    [NavList] TRANS ATLANTIC

    Kevin,

    The bubble octant in your picture is a U.S.Navy Mk V without the averager. It looks to be in good condition. I have had very good luck by bubble and natural horizon with a similar octant. It will be interesting to see how the MK V and the Frieberger compare.

    May the skies clear for you soon.

    Greg Rudzinski


    Greetings,

    Heavy cloud cover and rain showers. No sights in the AM.
    The photos are of my equipemnt. The bubble sextant is a Celestair that I found in a New Mexico antique store. It looked like it had been a mantle dust collector.

    The photo of the bridge captures the third mate checking the main engine gauges.

    Best Rgds,
