    Ageton on an Index Card
    From: Greg Rudzinski
    Date: 2009 Dec 5, 20:44 -0800

    The Ageton method is worth a try as a
    unique alteritive to the many sight reduction methods out
    there. For those not familiar with the Ageton method expect
    to spend a day practicing to get comfortable with Bowditch
    table #35 (or H.O. 211) and the suggested sequence of
    solution involving A, B, and K values. At first the whole
    reduction process will seem strange but the method will grow
    on you each time a sight reduction is completed. It takes
    about ten minutes to obtain an Hc and Azimuth. The compact
    size of the tables and being able to use any assumed
    position are the advantages over Pub 249 and 229. The whole
    reduction can be done on one side of an index card as seen
    attached.
