    Re: AM and PM time sights

    Dave,

    Check your assumed 41°S 174° 44.4' E  21:00 UT pre-calculation. I get 10° 10' Hc, LHA 308° 59.2' which changes the TS calc results. Sumner 40°S  42°S  should slop correctly ?

    I am having trouble with  a time sight, which I am using to plot Sumner lines (by his original method). If I use a pseudo PM sight  the Sumner line passes through my location. However if I use a pseudo morning sight the calculated longitudes are completely wrong and the Sumner line  slopes the same way as the PM sight. This suggests that the problem is with W or E meridian angles.

    Can someone please check my working which is as follows:

    (a) Calculate Hc from pseudo sight.

    LHA 309° 19.9'

    Hc 11° 1.2'

    Zn 46° 12'

    (b) Calculate longitude for two latitudes to plot a Sumner line.
