    I only brought it up because your original post might have made someone think he had seen Lord Howe from a hundred miles out on the approach and, if it could be seen from that distance then there was no need for celestial navigation, DR would have gotten him within that visual range. And, remember, our main focus on the forum is celestial navigation.

    You're right, looking behind him after he left. 
    I have attached Chichester's explanation of the navigation and Hughes'.
    Lord Howe looks like a beautiful island, see attached.
