    Dear Tony,

    Thanks for submitting a new set of observations.

    Please be so kind as to refer to the enclosed document.

    Further to our private exchanges, I first solved your observations through computing 6 different positions representing 6 intersections of the Equal [averaged] Heights Circles.

    I then averaged such 6 Latitudes and 6 Longitudes to get : Position   N60°08.17’ E029°56.15’

    Then I processed your data as Classical LOP's through "gathering" the observations in 2 different ways :

    (1) : under a 1st set of 12 averaged observations. And finally :

    (2) : under a 2nd set of 9 averaged observations.

    In both cases (1) and (2) I am getting final positions extremely close from one another with both Position③  and Position  showing at N60°07.9’ E029°56.1’ which is believed to be the best Position result which can be obtained from your data.

    BTW, what was your GPS position then ?

    Best Navigational Regards,

    Antoine
