I wrote that essay fifteen years ago, and at that time it seemed important to emphasize to navigation hobbyists that they could use the books and tools that they accustomed to using, including the correction tables in the Nautical Almanac. I don't think this is necessary anymore with the huge increase in quantity and in utilization of online and other digital ressources since then. In other words, just calculate those corrections.
Of course it's always nice to have a copy of the permanent tables from the Nautical Almanac. You can get the 1981 "Training" edition here:
