    Re: Beginningbook on CelNav (a sentimental favorite)

    My sentimental favorite is Celestial Navigavion by Frances w. Wright. I took her celnav class (Astro 99) when I was an undergrad at Harvard, and so became very familiar with the book.  Her book has a nice plus: on p127, there is a rather dashing photo of NavList member Ridge White at the helm of a boat somewhere off the coast of New England!

    Also her smaller "Particularized navigation" is a great read, esp as it emphasized the mantra that she drilled into the heads of all of her students -- "Constant vigilance!" That mantra and the fact that she usually brought apples and cookies to class utterly endeared me to her.  -p
