    Please enter the Navigation-l survey. This will aid in future Silicon Sea
    Legs and maybe help increase list discussions. Feel free to expand any
    category.
    
    Post replies to the list primarily. I will summarize  and post the results.
    
    Be aware that most of the better celestial navigation books were written
    before 1980. So still list yours.
