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.
