    it's a very handy program, called 'celestnav' very easy and handy, it works
    with palm os. You can try their demo fro free 30 days and after you must
    register.I have their version 2.1, it has many features useful for
    navigation altoghether with specific celestial navigation pages, allowing
    you to obtain lops very fast and easily.
    The only problem might be the size of characters and pages, so small and
    hard to see in poor light, but it's an overall quite unexpensive alternative
    to other calculator.
    Other possibilities are special calculators available trough the Celestaire
    and Starpath website,but I don't have any experience on them.
    A very good software, and free, is available on the page of Andree Ruiz,
    toghether with other useful informations.
