    Oscar, you wrote:
    "I am a doctoral candidate, and my major is marine celestial navigation. Recently, I have conducted research on a fisheye camera which can be used for taking pictures of the sea horizon and stars together, and a positioning accuracy of 0.5 n mile has been obtained."

    That sounds quite fascinating!

    And you wrote:
    "I want to apply for studying abroad for one or two years, but I have not found suitable universities relevant to my major. Would you please give me some advice about the professors or universities in this area? The relevant universities should be top 200 all over the world, and Commonwealth of Nations countries are considered first."

    I am sure there are some NavList members who might have some ideas. Richard Langley? Any thoughts? I would say that there are no universities in the 21st century with programs specifically focused on celestial navigation, but if you were interested in working on celestial-aided electronic navigation systems, what would you look for?

    I'm really just "bumping" Oscar's original message. I'm really surprised that NavList members ignored the original. Incidentally, based on certain clues, I believe that Oscar is located in East Asia, if that helps anyone with offering advice.
