    Re: HO 211 (Ageton) accuracy test
    From: Wolfgang K�berer
    Date: 2009 Jun 25, 07:30 +0200

    There was article by Samuel Herrick,"The Accuracy Of Ageton's Method in
    Celestial Navigation" in:
    Publications of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific, Vol. 56, No.
    331,149 ff., dealing with the same question. It ends with the following
    remark:
    
    "In fine, the maximum error of 30 miles that may be found in the use of
    Ageton's tables without interpolation sets a dangerous trap for the unwary
    navigator, especially if he may be an airman making a sun-line approach at
    sea, but forewarned, he will find a way for his taste avoiding it."
    
    
    Wolfgang
