    Re: Negative v correction

    Terry,

    You have the right idea.  The v value comes from the daily page, and is used to get the v correction from the Increments and Corrections.

    Take a look at the Sight Reduction & Fix tool in the Celestial Tools program (Windows) to see how these are used on a form similar to that of the United States Power Squadrons.  Attached is a screen shot of a made-up sight illustrating this.

    Sorry just thought... I would not take the value directly from the daily page but I would take it from the Increments and Corrections conversions page ? That would make the time values more accurate right?
