My home made full sized BN has generally been accurate to within 5', with occassional outliers of 10' using the recommended techique of placing pencil dots for lat and LHA.
I am now getting average 2' accuracy by only using whole number lat and LHA for AP, using the printed dots and lines which are spaced at 1°
This is as good as the Bygrave, but much faster and easier, with no writing down or calculating intermediates like W, X, Y or co-lat.
Just hope one of you intrepid aviators (Gary or Brian, maybe?) would try it out against the Bygrave.
See attached for details and photos.
