    From another newbie:  I have not tried a dedicated device like Celesticomp,
    but I use Pocket Stars (laptop and iPaq) and CelestNav (Palm).  Very handy
    for verifying my work and checking how reductions are done.  I've programmed
    many of the usual nav formulae into PowerOne Graph, which is a programmable
    calculator for Palm handheld computers (dips, distance to horizon, great
    circle sailings, etc).  I use Planetarium on my Palm for star maps and for
    checking celestial body positions to learn the stars and plan sights, and
    Starry Night on the desktop computer and Pocket Stars on the iPaq for their
    almanac information on those platforms.
