    Navigation always meant celestial or astronomical.  Piloting referred to onshore work, which was distinctly second class: there were many more pilots than navigators.

    I never noticed before, but the “Admiralty Manual of Navigation (1964)” doesn’t use either astro or cel nav terms. At least not in Volumes 1 or 2, which are the ones I have.

    It seems to prefer the term “off-shore navigation”, or just “navigation”. 

    Anyway, meant for professionals, but good books if you can find them.
