Re: CN book and software for those interested

From what I can tell by comparison, it is more accurate than commercially available programs and easier to use. Sight planning, built-in perpetual almanac, sight reduction with plotted LOPs. Rise/set times, and Lunars are also part of this program. It is easy, fast, and makes CN a blast! In the near future I will also upload for free download Ageton S-tables with my easy to follow work sheets such that you can do all your CN with no electronics or computers and no sight reduction tables (you just need an Almanac and the ability to add and subtract), just 9 pages of numbers.

Re: Celestial Navigation Fun !

Thank you all for the compliments on the book! It was a labor of love, and I am so happy that so many of you appreciate it. Use the software too!

Have a happy holiday!
