    With respect to the message written by JRH Scott on 06-16-2003 0632 that
    stated in part:
    
    > About fifteen years ago I bought a book, (whose author, title, ISBN, etc., I
    > cannot recall) on how to program an electronic calculator with all the
    > formulae I needed to plot LOP's.  That meant I didn't need to carry my HO249
    > tables, etc.
    >
    > I cannot locate this book locally, and I wonder whether anyone can offer me a
    > clue(s) in order to pursue my search for this book.
    
    
    It might have been "Navigator's Pocket Calculator Handbook" by H. Rolf Noer,
    Cornell Maritime Press 1983, 159 pages, ISBN 0-87033-295-3.  It fits your
    description; most of the book is devoted to problems in celestial
    navigation. It's no longer in print, but Amazon has a few copies starting at
    $10.59.
