Sextant-Pick up from box and explain all about it. -explain Index error and how to calculate it. He asked me whether can I use star, moon and horizon to calculate Index error. -The graduation in the sextant was 130degrees. He asked me if it was measured with protractor, it would be only 65degrees. But why is it graduated to 130 degrees. Why is it so?

Stevensons screen-What is the use of it? -How do u predict fog? -What is the location and can it(stevensons screen) be placed directly in sun shine?
