    I think he was recommending that you work the sight as a normal LOP by using the tables, HO 249 or HO 229 or others. You should get the same latitude since the resulting LOP will run east and west for a noon shot.

    I am getting good LAN sights now.  Today I was within a tenth of a minute of the GPS latitude and two-tenths two days before that.  I think it is time to move on.  Greg, you have indicated a path forward, but I do not understand what you mean.  Can you elucidate?

    As a check try reducing the LAN as a regular LOP observation to hopefully get an azimuth of 180� and an intercept from GPS to match the LAN Latitude.
