    Lunar Distance & Direct Fix
    From: Gordon Talge
    Date: 1997 Jul 31, 5:29 PM

    Just got the new issue of "Navigation: Journal of the Institute
    of Navigation" Vol. 44, No.1
    
    The first two articles are:
    
    "The Lunar Distance Method in the Nineteenth Century:
     A Simulation of Joshua Slocum's Observation on June 16, 1896"
    
     by Siebern Y. Van der Werf  ( about 13 pages )
    
     and
    
    "The Direct Fix of Latitude and Longitude From Two Observed
     Altitudes" by Stanley W. Gery ( about 9 pages )
    
     Method has been programmed into an HP 15C and Radio Shack
     EC-4026. Article include code for the EC-4026.
    
    I have scanned them and they look real good. I haven't read them
    in depth or tried the methods out yet.
