"In the year 1831, the first Transit was made by William J. Young."  It was graduated to read by vernier to 3 minutes, it being in early days a favorite idea of inventor that graduations of 3 minutes could be easily read to one minute, and was less perplexing to use.

It's good to go with yours. Hope everyone enjoys.
