You did enter this. I've looked at these, opened them to see the details, but didn't 'close' them.

Re: Celestial Navigation Plugin Redux

Thanks for the correction. Please use Tracker for items that are bugs or feature requests, as I may not have kept up with what you've found out. Also use the comments section for specific items in tracker. Thanks very much!

I have added your comment to

We will be posting incidents related to this extemporaneously (as it happens) until we know that this can be closed.
and I am not closing it until we know more. You can post your comments...as they happen.

Using your data for sun and moon in the plugin, I found a slightly different position (while under the computation tab all correction values were identical and the almanac derived data were slightly different; this is strange):
I found:
Lat 35 07.6 N
Lon 020 45.5 W

You found:
Lat 35 08.7 N
Lon 020 43.0 W

You found using DSV:
Lat 35 11.9 N
Lon 020 43.7 W

Moon was very low, which means that corrections for parallax should be applied as accurate as possible. In your Aufgaben temperature and pressure never seem to be mentioned.

Re: Celestial Navigation Plugin Redux

I suggest to include the observation time (GMT or UT) under the Computation Tab for saving.

Re: Celestial Navigation Plugin Redux

NAV can we close this tracker item?

FS#1440 : Fix reversing order Sight entry


NAV reports that: "This problem is showing again too. It seems to happen after applying a change to an earlier input."
Rgleason Tested earlier and thought it was working, but did not try to change an earlier input, just entered a sight and then closed it and everything seemed to correspond during that session.

Comment by sean d'epagnier (seandepagnier) - Monday, 25 August 2014, 11:46 GMT Edit Delete I believe this is fixed, please confirm

Re: Celestial Navigation Plugin Redux

If the plugin version of august 9th is the latest, none of the bugs listed can be deleted. I still see the same problems.

However, I get the impression that you think that something has changed. If so, please explain. Perhaps I missed something.

I believe I fixed the above bugs now, except the reversing month/day which I cannot produce.
