    Hello Frank,

    I have reed your post about Modern Celestial Navigation and was surprised
    about the total decimal approach.

    The opening line makes it immediately clear. Goodbye Minutes of Arc.
    But I had never expected this from the Course Title or the description.
    Now I understand what you have told before not to use the ° ' key on the calculator.
    There is no need for this with this total decimal approach.

    The disadventage I have, is that I have no feeling with  34.653° instead of what I am
    used to 34°39,2'
    One more explaning title for this course could be.

    Modern Decimal Celestial Navigation.

    But that's just one suggestion.

    Regards,

    HermanD
