Log

Astrocalc results for the am and pm sights confirm Tony's lookup of Hc, Zn and intercept values in his printed sight reduction tables.

Plot

Observed position after the run in excellent agreement with the gps values: at 17:00 local time Tony records a gps position of 34 48'N 28 56'E . In my plot I used a distance run of 20Nm between am and pm sights(9am to 5pm).
