    Re: Low altitude sun

    Paul,

    You asked if the reason you got a zero intercept was the use of the near shore for horizon (0.7 miles with height of eye at 7').

    I cannot see where you used a dip short correction for the near shore.  If you did, please clarify, if not, then the intercept isn't 0.

    Just a question , would the near shore I used as the horizon be the reason I got a 0.0 intercept with this shot of a low altitude Sun.

    Distance to shore 0.7 Nautical Miles.

    Height of eye 7'.0" feet
