    Re: Ageton method and HO 211?

    I really agree with Gary, having recently tried different short table techniques. I’ve found Weems Line of Position Book very ease to use , and Dreisonstok H.O. 208 is almost as easy. Somehow my brain works better with Weems.  I was able to buy on line Weems Line of Position Book, 4th edition 1942-43. It has a diagram (by Rust?) for azimuths.  Cost was  $10-15 USD. It is a very slim manual which covers all latitudes. Very neat and easy!  For Dreisonstok, I recommend purchasing “Self Contained Navigation with H.O. 208” by John Letcher. The book contains H.O. 208, 6 th edition 1942, but H.O. 208 is available in various places including NavList.  
     
    Regards to all.

    HO 249 is quicker with fewer steps so fewer opportunities to make an error than HO 211. If you want to use a tabular method like HO 211 then I suggest you try Weems or Dreisenstok, they are easier to use than Ageton. See the comparison of the different methods in these prior posts:

    Subject: [NavList] Ageton method and HO 211?
     
    I've reviewed the Ageton method using HO 211 and it seems very agreeable in procedure and usage. Also, having a smaller amount of necessary pages to refer to and carry around is attractive.
    What are the drawbacks to using HO 211 (Ageton's method) in determing a fix compared to using HO 249 for sight reductions?
