    Hi guys,
     
    A while back several of us were trying to get hold of a copy of Charles Cotter's classic book on celestial navigation techniques, entitled "A History of Nautical Astronomny."  I have arranged to get copies of this book and if anyone is still interested in a copy, they should contact me privately on my email address:

    It really is a fantastic book and puts into perspective all of the different techniques of celestial navigation.

    My favorite CN book by far, although I am not acquainted with many recent ones, is "Celestial for the Cruising Navigator" by Merle B. Turner, published about 1986. Turner is very thorough and his work is not a cook-book. Unlike many technical works in other areas it would be very difficult to condense his book further.

    Just the recommendation of a hobbyist.
