For what it's worth, I have created a cleaned-up copy of the Nautical Almanac for 1981 (that is still used for USCG celestial navigation training ...yes, really, they use an almanac from 35 years ago). This pdf has proper pagination for a "right page first" printing when printed double-sided so that the interior pages open to a single date, as they should. It also includes cleaned up refraction pages and moon correction pages including two pages which in the old original scan were part of a separate "inside cover" double-page that caused printing problems and was difficult to read. The star charts have also been replaced with better scans. All data is exactly as in the standard USCG training document including the "additional corrections" for the planets which are correct for 1981.
