    I am a beginner in celestial navigation and I found the website not
    that bad. I went through it on an afternoon, albeit not fulfilling the
    exercises .For me the concept sounded quite clear at a first glance.
     Perhaps I will comment on it in more detail, having fulfilled the
    exercises in a few weeks...
