    Welcome Bubi
    There is a wealth of information about bubble sextants and their care in our archives - its a topic that comes up regularly here.
    As a starting point, why not try searching
    using, for example, bubble sextant as an initial search phrase. 
    If you develop specific queries you've most likely come to the right place to have them answered.  There seem to be quite a few list members with bubble sextants, which I gather often involves their restoration and maintenance.

    I am new to this group and new to celestial navigation. I currently
    work as an airline pilot and fly extensively over water at night. I
    have developed a keen interest in determining my position the old
    fashion way.

    Could someone tell me which bubble sextant I should buy?
    What should I be looking on a bubble sextant?
    Where can I buy one?

    Thank you in advance.
