    Nomenclature Semantics
    From: Norm Goldblatt

    Could someone explain the rationale for naming the different stages of correction in H.   Hs=sextant measurement makes sense. H=apparent H, does not, nor does Observed.  To me, Observed is what we observe (duh) which this newcomer would call Hs.  And H, I would call Basic correction and finally HO, I would call 'actual' or true, as in true North, etc.  So, I would re-name them Hs,Hb,Ht, or similar.
