    Nice early twilight shot of Jupiter
    From: Paul Jackson

    Hi to the team at NavList,

    Had a blue sky day down under today so went ahead and shot Jupiter in the early twilight, got a nice 0 intercept so thought I would share the data.

    DR = Known 36°49.0 South. 174°46.1 East.

    Eye Height 6'.4"  Shore Distance 0.7 NM for dip to shore =  Minus 5.0

    Index correction Minus 0.5

    Hs 45° 46.9

    GMT 23 Days 05 hours 55 mins 20 sec

    Star Pilot gave me a 0 intercept, so I was a good boy and went about sight reduction with nautical almanac and HO:229

    Sextant: C.Plath Navistar Classic 4x 40 scope.

    Hope this data is of interest to the team, 

    Paul w Jackson
