    Hardly ever get an LOP than 20 NM - why?
    From: Laurence Holden
    Date: 2020 Jan 16, 19:42 -0800

    With somewhat over 200 sun sights with my AstraIIIB now, I rarely come up with an LOP under 20NM, and I can'tfigure out why. I've checked and rechecked the setting of my mirrors (I'm using the whole horizon mirror) and and they are correct. I am doing my sights in a pan of water. All I have left to wonder is if my calculations are somehow wrong. Would someone look over a recent sight reduction of mine and see if I am doing something wrong?
