I liked this comment, "So, for $50 for the sextant, $30 for a Nautical Almanac and $20 for a decent quartz watch, you can be adequately equipped to navigate across an ocean for about $100, roughly the same price as a bottom-shelf handheld GPS or a good hand-bearing compass."

Article is here: Strait of Magellan: Celestial Navigation 101, Interlude: What sextant should I buy?

For $100, maybe its best just to get this equipment and play along with the videos/books mentioned above. Will update...
