    Re: Calculator v. Slide Rule for Ex-Meridian Correction

    Based on past experiences with dead electronics at sea, I cheer you on.  I wish I knew how to use my fathers old log-log slide rule, for sentimental reasons as much as anything...  Its on my list of things I want to do........Of course i could carry four little solar calculators in a ziploc bag too...that would weigh ounces.....  and at least one will probobly work at any given time...

    I would say that traveling light for celestial, I fell in love with HO208. Even a comparitive celestial dummy like me got right answers first time out of the garage... I could carry probobly ten copies of my old 1930 ish copy vs a single volume of 229.  It lays right in with my little orange hardcover almanac in my oversized sextant box.
