    New Celestial Navigation Website
    From: Mary Taylor

    Hello, listmembers. I have never posted before, but today I am writing
    to ask for help with my new celestial navigation website, which will
    be called celestialnavigation.net.  Right now it is in a beta version
    and can be found at   It is not "open to the public"
    yet and has a few bugs and a blank space or two (the paragraph on
    the cross-staff is missing, for example). Also, books aren't linked
    yet until I get approval from Amazon. And for some reason, there are
    many days that I can't get Al Placette's great site at all, and other
    days that it loads instantly.
    Its purpose is to act as general hub - an annotated one, not just a list -
    of the best celnav sites on the Internet. It grew out of my frustration in
    trying to find websites when I first started looking. There were a number
    of good ones, but they were deeply buried and there was no central
    place to look.
    Probably most of you, being so advanced and brilliant, will not need
    it. It is really written for teachers, beginners, people who want to learn
    more, etc.
    If you are the author of a page I have included and for some reason
    want to change the way you are linked, please write me off-list. I am
    hoping no one will say, "Don't link to me at all!" My page is non-profit and
    educational, and I believe it fills a gaping hole.
    I have tried to keep it very fast loading. I can do some fancy stuff but I
    haven't decided if it is a good idea to make it too grapich heavy.  I think
    there are some pages that without pictures are dull to look at, so I am
    still looking for graphics.  Since there are so many good tutorials with
    heavy graphics, I am not really including any astronomical ones unless
    I can find or make some small ones.
    Please take a look and write to me. Remember it is not done and is a
    work in progress.  If you have ideas of pages or things to add let
    me know. Thank you all.
