    An ideal book for your purpose might be 'The Complete On-Board Celestial
    Navigator' by G.C. Bennet, published by International Marine -
    
    
    Described as 'An all-in-one navigation toolbox' it contains 'all the
    essential tables, astronomical data, and explanations for predicting and
    reducing observations made at sea', including
    
    'a book on astronomical navigation
    a nautical almanac good for 5 years
    worldwide sight reduction tables
    a star finder'
    
    There is a new edition being released shortly. It has about everything
    you need all together (including instructions and forms for sight
    reduction, etc, that can be photo-copied) in a compact hardcover book
    that lies open flat.
    
    No I don't have shares but use it a lot.
