The Lost Sextant

The saga of the lost sextant ended today.

The one I ordered in October finally arrived today, after making its trip from India to Memphis in only four days.

And it has been lost in the hands of FedEx ever since. I had given it up, ordered another, received it in less than a week and used it in the cover photos for my novel trilogy.

Although the old one arrived in the filthy, heavily damaged container above this morning, it was encased in layers of bubble wrap and the only broken piece was a sheared-off brass screw that holds the image splitter in place. Pretty sure I’ll find one that can replace it among my model railroading treasures.
