Thanks for the response. I guess my thoughts were since I am already interested in the night sky these might go hand in hand. I bet hitting the on button is easier!! I have a profound appriciation for learning
skills that can be rewarding. Sailing is one of them... flying is one id like to pick up in the future. This is something I feel that if you were able to get an adequate understanding and ability to calculate it would just be something to have under the belt, or a notch on the belt. I find learning
how do use the physical world around me to my advantage is... well ... fulfilling!
Being prepared is a great thing to work for. (no i don't have food
stored up or an arsenal of automatic weapons) But knowledge is power... or so I think.
I'll take a browse for that book and see if i can throw it on my e-reader. Thanks!
