    No, Gary. I didn't. thanks. You know, on our cruise, I brought a green laser pointer and it was a hit. Even the skipper didn't know the night sky. Pointed out Jupiter, the constellations. We never saw the North Star as we were always on the south side of the anchorage and the hills obsured about 10 deg, just enough to occlude Polaris. Everyone was so intrigued. Of course, it wasn't as 'gutsy' as you teaching them celestial navigation, but still....
    Even NOT being able to see the most famous of all the stars, The North Star was a good lesson. Most folks think it's the brightest star in the sky. So even if we were far enough north to see it, I be they would be intrigued at how unremarkable it appears.
