    Re: Centres of a triangle

    Finding the center of a triangle is good fun, yes.
    But the center of a circle is not NAVIGATION FIXING, It may be more correct for STARS than BEARING NAVAIDS, but every thing is not perfect, some of your sights are better than others,(The STAR Navigator should feel which is better or lesser.) and (The NAVAID closer to the observer will have a CPA closer to the shooter.)
    LOP are never equal, so what has the triangle center got to do with NAVIGATION?
    Only the NAVIGATOR knows. By now most will see that I try to get others to think and not follow the book or what they were taught. You the NAVIGATOR must use experence and skill for ship fixes.
