    > How would you compare the 1978 (13th ed.) vs/ 1985 (14th ed.) books? Which
    is more extensive on celestial, or overall?
    Hi Jared,
    I have a copy of both...my 13th is tatty( picked up in a job lot of about 10
    books), so when I saw a chance I picked up my 14th in as new condition for
    about $10US, I think.
    There is very little difference between them as to celestial nav
    content...the chapter headings are the same, some of the chapters have been
    re-written in the 14th, but the content is mostly all there, sometimes with
    additions. The 14th has more chapters on piloting, particularily with regard
    to use of radio and radar tools. The 14th has an improved layout over the
    13th, and is possibly a better book in terms of "book production" and paper
    quality. Both are excellent sources for celestial nav. If you are choosing,
    I would probably go for the 14th.
