    Re: Compass Check

    I did not correctly RTFM. The instructions in Burdwood state:

                In South Latitude When apparent time is P.M. read the azimuth from South to West.

    Therefore an azimuth of 96° from Burdwood is 276° in 360 degree notation. The compass error is 8° not 4°

    I have attached a corrected version of the pdf.
