    Well, I can imagine that two octants and one
    sextant could be a standard equipment for a serious
    Lunar distance navigator:-) As the beginning of the same page
    in Norie indicates.
    
    But I hope you won't miss my messages
    on "Nonlinearity tables" and "Lunars with SNO-T",
    as I am very interested in your reaction.
    
    Alex.
