    Celestial position-finding on land
    From: John D. Howard
    Date: 2016 May 2, 13:10 -0700

    Hello all,

    Gary LaPook's reply to my question about his artillery sight remined me of an article I had read in The Field Artillery Journal, Nov. 1942 about Celestial Navigation for field artillery. It talks about finding the position of the unit (battery) when in the North African desert by Cel-Nav. Almost a short course on LOP's, HO 214, Almanac, etc.

    I have used Cel-Nav when flying in the Air Force and I gather most here use their sextant for boat navigation. My question: Has anyone used Cel-Nav for anthing else? I would think surveyors might have in the past and explorers.

    Thanks,

    John H.cj
