    I have a pile of completed sight reduction forms and plots involving my attempts at using the Davis AH.I will go through them looking also at the possibility of calculation error, transposition of numbers, that sort of thing, which more than once, I caught myself doing, and will post some of the results, as you suggested.

    By the way, re your polite reference to the possibility of what I described as "operator error", "That would involve an error in sextant reading of around 6',...", while such is possible, I don't think that that is the culprit here, as least I hope not, for such would be a rather gross error, one that I would hopefully avoid. Who knows though. Only The Shadow Knows, as that long gone perhaps forgotten radio show used to claim.
