    Re: What is a good sextant to buy?

    Hope all is well with you and yours. On to other things, I too have a GPS I purchased a while back. It will give me, however it accpmplishes this, my coordinates, latitude and longitude to 10 feet. I break out my Astra 111B when I get down to the beach where I can shoot the sun, sun and moon, planets and moon whatever is available and can recognize, coming up with a calculated fix well within 5 miles of GPS coordinates, most of the time. It's relatively sloppy, but at least there is my input, and I have some understanding, limited through it may be, of what is going on. Don't get this from any collection of electronic bits that I've run into. Take care.
