One addition for our overseas members (just like me 52°N 04°E) the FX-260 calculator is named in Europe fx-82 Solar II
I discovered this by coincidence on this website: http://edspi31415.blogspot.com/2017/03/review-casio-fx-260-solar-ii-fx-82.html
In person I never use this type of calculator, I prefer a calculator that works in a for me more logical sequence.
Type in the formule as you reed it from paper, for instance Sin 45°, on the Casio you type 45° and then the SIN key.
On the TI calculators that I prefer ( TI-30Xpro and the ultimate celestial calculator TI-89 with Starpilot) you type SIN 45°.
But that's all personal preference of course.
