    Re: Noon sight for longitude

    The method described in Ocean Navigator is the one in Bowditch current edition.

     

    I am agree with Jim Wilson and his paper “Position from Observations of a Single Body”, a simulation may be found in [NavList 5252] Re: Exercise #5 Lat/Long near Noon. I have calculated the L at LAN using Jim’s method in the attached excel spreadsheet.

     

    Also I try this method aboard a sailboat and the results are acceptable due to the waves and roll and pitch
