    Hello George, I would love to have a copy of those pages.
    TURBO!!!!!cause bottles are for babies and superchargers blow!!!
    Which would you rather have, go fast goodies or shiny shoes?
    Your feet may look good, but if your engine blows up, you ain't going anywhere.

    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.
