    Re: Hughes explanation of Chichester's navigation.

    Gary,

    first, thank you for this copy. This will require a long study.

    May I ask a question a concerning the mechanics of CelNav
    while flying? I flew gliders for a long time so I may have some
    appreciation of the process.

    Both, operating the sextant or the Bygrave requires 2 hands, right?
    So how does one operate the yoke in the meantime to keep the plane
    in straight and level flight?

    Observing the plane's attitude and looking through the sextant at the
    same time seems difficult but you probably trained yourself to do that.
    I can also see you writing on a kneepad for the calculations.
