    Re: Nautical Almanac Method Reduction

    Hi
    
    Thanks for the answers, I guess I didn't explain my question well enough.
    Both Dan's answer and CH.10 of astro about the "Divided Navigational
    Triangle" are close to what I am looking for, but I'm not a mathematician.
    
    What I'm looking for is to generate the values in the NOA sight reduction
    tables;  A,B,Z1,H,PZ2, and the values from the aux. tables.
    
    As an example the Agetons's compact table (HO211) "A" values can be
    calculated using A = log( csc( angle ) ) * 100000.
    
    I'm looking for the equivalent formulas of the NAO sight reduction tables.
    
    Thanks
    Gord
