    Oh Peter
    Just because winter has set in there, boats are on the hard, and the
    religious holidays revolve around the northern-hemisphere calendar and
    winter solstice is no reason to enter curmudgeonhood at such an early age.
    In fact the weather has been no treat in the Great Lakes region of the USA
    recently.  One front marching through after another.  Evenings in the mid
    50'S (F). On the upside, lots of wind.
    One of George's posts, at least on my e-mail program, was a duplicate.  So
    let's leave pedantic alone and focus on redundant. ;-)
    Changing topic, I've been playing with your 270 azimuth for longitude idea.
    My pie plate of oil with glass over it is proving to be quite a challenge at
    30d elevation, but nonetheless finding longitude within 0!9 and 0!5 with
    single observations although I missed 270d by many minutes on the one-shots.
    Within 153 ft on the day I could average and fit to curve. (Better lucky
    than good).  More on that in a separate post when I gather more data and get
    my artificial-horizon quirks under control.
