    Sorry, the question was both poorly stated and already included in the data
    you posted.
    
    My point being, there are some positions that give me fits.  Getting a good
    shot is extremely difficult for me.  Could we located other stars in the the
    same separation range as the problem areas that might offer a different
    (easier) sextant position?
