    Need Help w/ Ageton method...
    From: Phil Guerra
    Date: 2003 Mar 2, 21:17 -0600
    Is anyone willing to help a newbee with the Ageton method?  I found a copy of Ageton's Celestial Navigation, copyrighted 1943.  I've gone through the example in the back chapter on using the method with D.R., but I don't understand where he gets the value 'R'.  I can see how he draws the line segment, but where is that value taken from the table, or is it derived from a formula only?
     
    Thanks
