          Comments about Davis Instruments Mark 15 Sextant:

          I have owned my Davis model 15 Sextant for almost 10 years now. And due to my own errors in using it, had a difficult time getting a good shot at the noon sun. Since figuring out my error I have made noon shots consitantly within 1/2 mile of my position and some within a few hundred feet. I am very happy with this instrument and would recommend it to anyone.
