    50mm DSLR Camera Celestial Exercise

    The linked DSLR 50mm photograph of the Sun using my dollar store sextant 
    prototype generated an LOP azimuth of 100.2� true and an intercept of 10.3' 
    away from an assumed position of 34� 00' N and 119� 20' W. There is 
    additional information in the photograph that will provide a fix.
    
    1. What island are you looking at?
    2. What is the vessels Latitude and Longitude?
    3. Is there enough water under the keel for the USNS Port Royal?
    4. What might be onboard besides the navigator?
    
    Hints - Use charts #18720 & #18729
          - Also consult google earth and flash earth.
