    Dear Andrès,

    I found the following results using Coplanar Vertices Method :

    DOP indicator = 3.93  (not very good)

    L = 10° 54.1' S  ,  G = 178° 54.8' E

    Standard deviation = 3.39 NM 

    Distance to EP = 35.55 NM

    See attached file for the full delivery.

    Folding back to LOPs with ASTROLAB produces intercepts and azimuts as follows:

    SIRIUS: I =  +20.08 NM , 103.4°

    CAPELLA: I = +32.56 NM ,  8.4°

    POLLUX: I = +31.37 NM , 48.1°

    The fact that the azimuts are grouped within 95° explains that the a-priori DOP is significant.

    Best Regards
