    Guy Schwartz asked-
    
    | I know how to reduce a sight using the Nautical Almanac Sight Reduction
    | method, however I don't
    |
    | Understand what I am doing aside from following the recipe.
    |
    | Can anyone give me a easy to understand description of what each step is
    | doing.
    
    ===================
    
    I think I have the answer to Guy's question. It's a paper in two parts, 7 A4
    pages in all, which appeared in the spring and summer issues of "Navigator's
    Newsletter", by P M Janiszek, who, as I understand it, was responsible for
    these tables. I think, after reading those pages, Gay will feel that he
    knows all that needs to be known about those tables, and perhaps a bit more.
    
    I have sent scans of those pages backstage to Guy, but won't publish them to
    Navlist as they are copyright to the Newsletter. If anyone else would like
    to refer to a copy, I'm happy to share; just ask.
    
    George.
