    Re: 2102-D star finder or other?

    Hi Sam,

    >non-electronic gadget

    To begin, I am not sure if your star finding includes at sea conditions or just a backyard application.  At sea use the 2102-D and your Nautical Almanac in dawn sight planning the night before your morning shoot, etc.  At home (and at sea) I second Ken's suggestion of the Celestaire Catalog back cover and I can also recommend the chart used in the Air and Nautical Almanacs.:
