Paulette Dawkins, whom Dean thought was dining with her clan, bounded into the kitchen to report a mouse sighting in her room.
Until the 9th century the only means for sighting cannon was by the " line of metal " - a line scored_ along the top of the gun, which, owing to the greater thickness of metal at the breech than at the muzzle, was not parallel to the axis.
Called the sighting radius.
If the dispart sight were EarlyTangent being used, the sighting radius would be OD, but, as Sight.
The formula for length of scale is, length = sighting radius X tangent of the angle of elevation.
Amount of left deflection given - the amount can easily be determined thus: The height of tangent scale for any degree of elevation is given with sufficient accuracy by the rough rule for circular measure It= X 1200 where a is the angle of elevation in minutes, h the height 3 of the tangent scale, and R the sighting radius; thus for 10 h _ 60 X R _ 2.0 Now supposing the sight is inclined I° to the left, 3600 - which will move the notch from H to H' (see fig.
This was arranged for by a movable leaf carrying the sighting V, worked by means of a mill-headed screw provided with a scale in degrees and fractions to the same radius as the elevation scale, and an arrowb head for reading.
Other improvements were: the gun was sighted on each side, tangent scales dropping into sockets in a sighting ring on the breech, thus enabling a long scale for all ranges to be used, and the foresights screwing into holes or dropping into sockets in the trunnions, thus obviating the fouling of the line of sight, and the damage to FIG.
Instruction in the use of sights was based on the principle of securing uniformity in laying; for this reason fine sighting was discountenanced and laying by full sight enjoined.
In addition to these open sights the bar also carries a sighting telescope.
The rocking-bar consists of a carrier a fixed to the cradle, a rockingbar d pivoted to the carrier at e, a sight bar f carrying the sights and sighting telescope.
Sighting telescopes were also intro FIG.
Taken over the sighting as over the " proof " of a military rifle.
Alvaro Mendana de Neyra, after crossing a vast extent of ocean from Peru and sighting only one island, probably in the Ellice group, reached the Solomon Islands.

Shields were covered with ox-hide and furnished with round sighting-holes above the middle.
After remaining near Minorca for four days without making any further attempt to communicate with the fort or sighting the French, Byng sailed away to Gibraltar leaving Fort St Philip to its fate.
