    I supose the difference you mentioned lies in the following, as things are today.

    While the USCG requires Celestial Navigation for licensing, I do not know to what depth their requirement goes, in most cases, old fashioned sextant shots are a thing of the past, all is electronics today. Isn't that the case? I cannot say.

    In any case Celestial Navigation, a hobby interest for me, as I ptactice it, now and then while standing on the beach, or mostly with an artificial horizon in the parking area of our residence amounts to doing something that I persoally find inteeresting, not something that some distant authority tells me I'm required to know something of.

    Think the foregog might be a factor?
