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.
