    Class using "H.O. 249" this weekend
    From: Frank Reed
    Date: 2013 Nov 13, 12:40 -0800

    I'm teaching another "celestial navigation" class at Mystic Seaport this weekend. Be impulsive: sign up today!

    "INTERMEDIATE CELESTIAL: Star Sights and Lines of Position"
    An excellent sequel to our "Easy Introductory Celestial Navigation" class. In this class, students will learn more about the use of the sextant and will learn the traditional "twilight round" of star sights for determining a vessel's position by plotting lines of position and working with "H.O. 249" sight reduction tables. Students will learn traditional shortcuts for locating the brighter navigational stars under the dome of Mystic Seaport's Treworgy Planetarium. Students will be provided with the necessary plotting tools and digital copies of the sight reduction tables.

    + Mystic Seaport Museum, Mystic, CT. Scheduled for November 16 - 17, 2013. 10:00 am - 4:00 pm both days.
    + Requirements: an introductory course or equivalent in the use of a sextant and other basic techniques in celestial navigation.
    + Cost: $95 ($85 for members of Mystic Seaport) +$20 "lab fee" for H.O.249 tables.
    + Register for this class by phoning the Reservations desk at Mystic Seaport Museum: 860.572.5322, press 1 at the prompt.
