    HP 48GX Sight Reduction Programs
    From: Glendon
    Date: 2001 Oct 04, 12:27 AM

    Some time back I kicked off a discussion about calculators revisited (TI-86 vs 
    HP 48GX)...I didn't get around to thanking the contributors to that 
    discussion, and I do so now! The discussion helped.
     I have bought a (s/h) HP 48GX and I'm in the process of learning to use it, 
    and in particular, I'm looking around for programs already developed for 
    sight reduction. http://hpcalc.org/hp48/science/astronomy/ has been the only 
    source I could find. I wonder if people know of other sources? Any comments 
    on the programs at that source..relative merits, etc? Sparcom has a Navpac 
    card for the HP 48GX...fairly expensive...does anyone have it/use it/any 
    comments?? You can see the drift of the discussion I am hoping to kick 
    Perhaps there is scope for an appraisal of these programs...in term of their 
    facilities, ease of use/data input, and their computational accuracy...if no 
    one else has done it, I might..I wonder if there is any interest?
