    Dan, I think the idea of a FAQ is excellent...saves sifting through the
    archives to find things. As a  novice to celnav and relative newcomer to the
    group the sort of questions that I have addressed have been pretty basic and
    of a practical nature. Over the last two years I have asked some of the
    following questions and/or followed/researched answers to them:
    What are some good books on celestial navigation?
    What are some good web resources on celestial navigation?
    What calculators/PDA's are useful for celnav, and what software is available
    for them?
    What are some good web/PDA resources for star identification, and provision
    of star ephemeredes?
    What are the main methods of sight reduction currently in use, and
    supported by readily available tables?
    If something like these questions should make it into your final list, and
    you are short of authors, I would be happy to make a first pass at an
    answer. Though I must confess I would like someone else to tackle the last
    question, as I am not too far down that path yet.
