    If the last two pages in your N.A. are blank (i.e. pp. xxxiv-xxxv), you are
    probably missing something. However, to be sure, you should look for altitude
    correction tables, not: HP correction tables.

    You are luckier than some English sailors. While you can still use the
    correction tables of last year's almanac, some of this year's TSO copies are
    lacking daily pages for May and June. Quite embarrassing, considering that
    this is the main season for many important passages. I thought I mention this
    as food for thought for those amongst us who use celestial as backup for GPS.
    Sometimes it works the other way round! So much for the myth of the self
    sufficient celestial navigator, who does not depend on a properly functioning
    system operated by the government.
    My apologies to George Huxtable for "farting in church".
