    >A couple new entries in Celestaire's catalog caught my attention.
    >First, Sven Lundin's pocket sextant is being offered for $65.  This
    >isn't one of those Indian-made Stanley reproductions but a set of
    >reflecting bits of glass which use a 35 mm film can as a carrying
    >case(!).  See the description for the details.
    >
    >Three book titles also stood out during my browsing.  Recalling the
    >discussion here about lunars, take a look at "Tables for Clearing the
    >Lunar Distance" by Bruce Stark (soft cover, spiral bound, 301 pp.,
    >$37).  "Compact Sight Reduction Table" by Allan E. Bayless (soft
    >cover, 32 pp., $6) is a compact version of the HO 211 tables.
    >Compression is achieved by omitting every other entry in the tables.
    >
    >The third title prompts a question about "how's it done".  "Celestial
    >Navigation with the S-table" by Mike Pepperday (soft cover, 30 pp.,
    >$9.95) has "...the only tables to yield the same results as a
    >navigation computer; that is they give intercepts directly from a DR
    >position."  Can someone explain why most paper reduction processes
    >work from an assumed position which isn't the DR position?
    >
    >Celestair is at 800-727-9785 or 316-686-9785 or
    >http://www.celestair.com.
    >
    >Disclaimer: I have no connection with Celestaire save as a satisfied
    >customer.
