Some points...
1/ the Q and A's are a bit muddled and in some cases missing... and no..I won't be going looking for least in the short term.
2/ a few typos slipped through the net ( I had to do my own proof reading.. never a good idea) but they would be picked up and a note included in the following month. So look ahead.

Thats it...
Downloaded and ready for study...

I own and like very much a small and excellent book (in my opinion):
Celestial Navigation for Yachtsmen
Mary Blewitt
As an aside, I find it somewhat amusing that a woman titled her book for yachtsmen. Anyway I have seen some books and this is very clear and easy to understand.
