Attached is Pub 208 and Trig Log sight reductions done on an index card. Pub 208 is a little less busy and takes a minute or two less time to reduce. The down side is a longer intercept on the plot. The cosecant secant trig log using the law of cosine formula is a good non electronic sight reduction to back-up a pocket calculator. For azimuth I like using a slide rule which is good enough and actually quicker than a pocket calculator.
