    Re: Latitude by Polaris

    One thing to remember is that Polaris is about 1deg. from the pole. Therefore you can get intercepts of  + or - one at certain times.

    Hello!

    What do I get when I try to calculate the HC with Polaris's LHA, Dec using properly cleared altitude as an assumed latitude?

    Looks like if I add the HC with the intercept value - I get the real latitude... The error is rather small for moderate latitudes.

    Please comment.

    Warm regards,
