Please correct me if I'm thinking in the wrong direction.
My understanding of a precision CN is to:
- minimise errors of individual sight
- compensate for the movement of body(es) and of an observer
If I take a "1st-2nd-3rd-1st-2nd-3rd-...1st-2nd-3rd" five-round series of sights and regress each body to some HCi(t) function (linear, quad or sine), I can then choose some value for variable t and calculate three perfectly simultaneous HCs as if three of me took them in almost-ideal conditions. Which, I believe, will give me more accurate fix.
Is this all nonsence or not?
