    Re: The Darn Old Cocked Hat vs CG?

    Hi Brad,

    are you talking about Jim Wilson, our friend in NavList, and the author of "Position from observation of a single body", and "The noon fix"?
    If so, can you give us some information about his MPP? thanks.

    BTW. The fix by least squares, (Originally: Optimal Estimation of a Multi-Star Fix, C. De Wit. NAVIGATION, Vol.21 , No. 4, Winter 1974-
    75, pp 320-325), is the official method for sight reduction in the Royal Navy, UK, (Astro Navigation. The Admiralty Manual of Navigation Volume 2).

    fair winds!
