• Upcoming updates
    Over the next couple of weeks we will be performing software updates on the forum. These will be completed in small steps as we upgrade individual software addons. You might occasionally see a maintenance message that will last a few minutes at most.

    If we anticipate an update will take more than a few minutes, we'll put up a notice with estimated time.

    Thank you!

Has anyone heard of a Breithaupt compass and sundial? The compass looks a bit like an oversized pocket watch (complete with bow) that has wings that can be pulled out of the case to enable the compass to fit into the sun dial. I would very much like to see photos of the sun dial portion, particularly with a focus on how the wings engage the base.

Thanks,

- Greg
