Thank you Paul.
Gary sent a picture of his “sun compass” I am wondering if you or anyone knows that William Austin Burt invented the “Solar Compass” as well as the Equatorial Sextant.
Wikipedia has a very nice article on him at: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Austin_Burt
With illustrations of his Solar Compass and Equatorial Sextant.
