    Yoder Sextant
    From: Hewitt Schlereth
    Date: 2009 Jun 11, 13:11 -0400

    Has anyone heard of a Yoder Sextant? There is one on eBay right now.
    It's a lovely looking piece of work. Perhaps a copy of a vernier
    sextant of a previous age?
    
    A puzzling feature is the markings on the vernier (see attachments)
    which has °s where I would expect 's. As I read it, the vernier is
    accurately showing a reading of 13°30'.
    
    This might be an appealing  alternative to a plastic sextant.
