    You're absolutely right, Brad.   As I recollect, though, the original question had to do how one might navigate once had landed on an extra-solar planet.

    It would seem that inter-stellar travel would indeed take some form of celestial navigation.  The stars can be considered to be points within 3 space.  As you move among them, the perspective of them will change while the positions of the stars do not.  Your position in interstellar space is a function of finding the position that matches the perspective!
    It seems on the face of it to be a reasonable transform

    True, but the question was about navigating on planets outside our solar system.

    In this conversation also Jupiter and Saturn were mentioned ... I assumed that one ment those in this solar system.
