Mike Bailey of the Brazoria County Historical Museum provided us this photo.  He is using our model Gunner’s Quadrant with a cannon there at the Museum.

 

We based our model on the one seen above in an article on Nicholas Tartaglia, the inventor of ballistics. https://www.famousscientists.org/niccolo-tartaglia/
