    Bonus Exotica January 2011
    From: Jeremy C

    We went to sea for 4 days in the past week.  Among the Bonus Exotica shots:
    Venus at upper transit during the daylight
    3-body Daylight fix at moon upper transit crossed with a sunline and a Venus LOP
    Upper transits of Acrux, and Gacrux
    Ex meridians of the moon and star Almak
    Sunset fix (Sun LL on the visible horizon crossed with Jupiter and the moon)
    Daylight LOP by Jupiter (1st time ever!)
    LOP's and Azimuths of Mercury
    Position by circles of equal altitude by the moon crossed with a sunline (Ho was 88+ degrees)
    I also shot the more mundane star fixes, various Azimuths, and sunlines (including LAN).
    A much more enjoyable outing than December when I was skunked except for an azimuth or two.
    We also swung the ship for the deviation table.  We did it "correctly" for the first time in years because the Captain abdicated the conn to the junior mates and me.  Imagine actually steadying up on a course to compare the two compasses!
