Continuing Apollo 11 "Live"

Day two, and they're still mucking around with the sextant, even maneuvering the spacecraft in order to lock on the proper star and get the "horizon" (Earth) properly lined up. Considering both Apollo 8 and Apollo 10 flew the same path to the moon, you'd think they'd have ironed out some of these difficulties.

Wonder how well they slept on their first night in space?

Over 100,000 nautical miles from Earth, traveling at 5200 feet per second. 77 hours until the landing.
