    I think we all agree that this is not the best way of getting a celestial fix, Jeremy himself said so.  For me this was a valuable learning experience and I thank Jeremy for sharing his measurements with us.  Many discussions on this list pertain to what to do when a better method is not available for some reason.  Recently I was explaining the merits of CelNav to some family members, and their reaction was: "Why don't you just use GPS?" :-)

    I just got the same response when demonstrating a boxwood sector to one of the staff engineers here.  He is a relatively recent graduate, but quite talented.  When I explained that the sector can be used to multiply numbers and do trigonometric functions, he responded  “Why don’t you just use a calculator?”
