    You don't have much room for plotting in the cockpit of s CRJ so let me suggest you look of a Polhemus computer on ebay which provides a very convenient plotting surface as well as a method for computing the "motions" corrections. Another way to even more easily compute the "motions" is to make the simple additions to your E-6B as shown on page 12-8 (page 202 of the pdf) of FAA-H-8083-18 which was previously uploaded or just google it and download directly from the FAA website. You can make the same addition to the Polhemus computer which is better since the scale is larger.  For an illustration of how this makes plotting fixes much easier go to my website at : https://sites.google.com/site/fredienoonan/other-flight-navigation-information/working-the-sight-in-flight   and https://sites.google.com/site/fredienoonan/other-flight-navigation-information/in-flight-celestial-navigation
