    Re: The Improved Suns Table4 from HO249

    Thanks Michael for your kind comment.
    Calculating practice and using the sextant is indeed necessery once a month.
    If I have not used the sextant for two months, the first sights are not very precise.
    Therefore if possible I take 5 sights and average them with the fit-slope method.
    Gives one more certain feeling than then approch of more "experienced" navigators.
    Who say I take one sight and feel if it is oke ore not. Well after 47 years of CelNav
    I never am sure, it is oke, or not.

    So go on practicing to keep the skill alive.

    I attached the last Main table with the Diff on 31 dec back on -8 value.
    This seems oke see Quick calculation message earlier.

    regards
