    Re: Latitude at noon

     Frank,

    Thanks for your reply.  Yes, an adverage of multiple sights is better than a single.  I do try to do 3 or 5 around noon and adverage them along with the time.  I guess what I was asking was would not the sight around noon be more accurate for latitude than sights 15 or 20 minutes before and after noon?

    Thanks.   John H.
