    His "Navigational Algorithms" programs do a good job of allowing one to import celestial fixes into OpenCPN. There's even a button in the "Chartwork" application that can be configured to launch OpenCPN. Then, you can simply use the "Route & Mark Manager" in OpenCPN to import the GPX file that "Chartwork" outputs. And "Chartwork" does most of the celnav calculations for you. I'll post some sample screenshots in a few minutes.
