    After spending much time on the "Latitude by two altitudes" problem detailed on page 6-3 of Umland's Short Guide to CN, I am totally lost.

    I used the following from the USNO almanac online:
    Sirius GHA 80* 0.7' dec s16* 44.1' H 37* 16.2' Zn 159.1
    Jupiter 152* 42.9' n10* 24.5' 34* 23.6' Zn 259.1

    I am assuming that the south dec is what is causing the pain but
    whatever it is, I am nowhere near the right answer, which should
    be close to 33.22*.

    Pointers, anyone?

    Thanks,
    Fred
