    Brian:

    Re which web sites to consult, your letter herwe indicated that you have found one such site.

    Additionally, take a look ast the Powwer Squadron web site, usps.org. Once therwe, go to downloadable fotrms, and print out their sight reduction form and their CLS (consdtant latitude) plotting sheet. You might also get a lARGER PLOTTING SHEET, vpo


    Brian:

    Re which web site(s) to look at, you have found one, re your inquiry here.

    You might also have a look at the power squadron web site, usps.org, where you can download sight reduction forms and constant latitude plotting sheets.

    I suspect that most any "interested persons) can learn to reduce sextant sights, and plot the lines of position obtained to establish their position, it isn't all that difficult, though use of the sextant does require practice, as it is a manual skill.

    There are any number of people on this site who know a whole lot more about CN than I, and it is my experience that they can be, and are willing to help if asked. Electronic Sliderule calculators are quite inexpensive these days, and are handy for doing such calculations as are needed.Some methods of sight reduction require little more than the addition and subtraction of numbers nn8617too.
