    Re: Non-traditional Sight Reduction
    From: Robert Eno
    Date: 2002 Dec 13, 14:16 +0000

    I have no experience with computer software and have not looked into it
    for the simple reason that I never intendt to take a computer with me on a
    boat trip. It just seems like a cumbersome proposition.
    
    If you want to go non-traditional, vis a vis site reduction, buy yourself
    a Celesticomp calculator. It is a superb, compact, little unit and best of
    all, it does not come with a 10,000 page manual, nor does it require you
    to be well-versed in integral calculus to operate it. In fact you can just
    start plugging away without even reading the instructions; it is that user
    friendly. Furthermore, the fellow that owns the company is a very nice guy
    and also responsive to customer queries.
    
    I give it five gold stars.
    
    And no, I am not a shareholder in the company. I am just very impressed
    with the Celesticomp.
    
    cheers,
    
    Robert
