    Re: Exercise #16 High Altitude Sights near Noon

    Jeremy, also when I passed my exams for “captain of yacht”, neither laptops nor programmed calculators are allowed.

    At home I do calculations by hand for practicing, but on a little sailboat is practically impossible to do astronavigation calculations without neglecting safety. This is one of the reasons for developing my own software, others are: is funny and the main one is a very good way to understand perfectly the problem and all its variants.

    Andres "cheated" a bit with the problem as he used a computer which certainly wouldn't be allowed in the exam room, but it does show how the circles work when reduced at sea.  I haven't had the chance to shoot any high altitude sun sights lately, but I will be mindful when I am at sea and will try to get some if it is possible.
