I'm a flightsimmer from Sweden. I am mainly into 40's and 50's civil aviation, including navigation. I fly airliners such as the DC-6 and the Constellation on long haul routes. I have created a nav log spreadsheet for MS Excel that does all the calculations for wind correction angles, speeds and distance and so forth. My question is if I can integrate Astron 1.15 in my spreadsheet and use as an engine for celestial computations. Is that ok? Credits for the work will of course be given!

A celestial navigation tool has been around for a long time for use with MS Flight Simulator 2004 and Flight Simulator X. A new addon for the latest MS Flight Simulator has been released recently and you can find out more here: Demonstration of astro navigation using MSFS - The Amelia Earhart flight. - YouTube
