    Samuel,

    Looks good to me.

    You can use the Sight Reduction & Fix tool of Celestial Tools (attached) to check your work.  It may not give exactly the same results, but it will be very close, and it will at least tell you if you forgot anything.

    Stan

    Subject: [NavList] Mars sight reduction

    We did a sight reduction of Mars and wanted to know if we did it correctly.
    Hs was 14d 32.8m (using an AH)
    The only correction to Hs was IC (-.1m)
    Ha= 7d 16.4min
    The only correction to Ha was Refraction (-7.4min approximate)
    GHA had "v" correction applied
    Dec had "d" correction applied
    Are there any other corrections or things missed?
    Thanks,
    Sam Lohengrin
