    Antoine,

    Yes the position was 34° 10.5' N  119° 13.8' W. The back of the envelope plot had the fix within 5 NM. This is satisfactory bubble octant accuracy for on land.

    Hello Greg,

    Long time no write ... Thanks for publishing your daybreak triple.

    I just processed it (many weeks - and maybe months - have elapsed since my last CelNav computation) and - assuming steady observer and HOE = O ft - I find you at N34°14'8 W119°12'5 with a "dispersion" of only 0.5 NM on your 3 observations, which is quite a remarkable achievement since you used a bubble octant.

    What was your actual position ? (? N34°10'5 W119°13'8 ?)

    Best Regards,

    Kermit
