    While Dutton's is no longer used at the Naval Academy you will find a
    copy on every Navy ship and we also use it at the Fleet Training Centers
    where we train the Quartermasters that actually navigate the ships.
    (Very little navigation is done by officers in the Navy, however
    Quartermasters still do celestial everyday in addition to using
    electronics.)

    Navigation and Nautical Astronomy

    Commander Benjamin Dutton

    This text was prepared for the instruction of midshipmen at the US Naval
    Academy since at least 1926. There are many editions.
    
    I doubt it is used now if what I hear about the discontinuation of
    teaching celestial navigation is true. Amazing if true.
    
    Anyway, there it is.
    
    You should be able to find a very cheap copy on any number of used book
    stores on the internet.
