    Automated celnav in the news
    From: Bill Lionheart
    Date: 2020 May 30, 16:30 +0100
    This just popped up in my news feed 


    "The officers and quartermasters are trained to use the computer-based program STELLA (System To Estimate Latitude and Longitude Astronomically), developed by George Kaplan of the U.S. Naval Observatory in the 1990s."

    Nothing  new to navlist members, just nice to see it in news (and George get a name check),  but I am sure many of us have been wondering when cheaper smaller automated nav turrets will be availiable, and the discusion azimuth only fixes may be relevant  too.

    improvements in quantum accelerometers, quantum magnetometers and cameras  might play a role.
