    Re: Nories sight reduction tables?

    I am somewhat confused by use of the terminology "Norie's Sight Reduction Tables". If you are referring to Norie's Nautical Tables, find them free for download at archive.org; just type Nautical Tables into the search field and enjoy to your hearts content.

    The Norie that Brendan linked to on Amazon is the $55 version. There are two cheap scans of originals available on Amazon for just a few dollars. I bought both.
    The black and white cover one is the 1836 version. Not perfect but readable. My only objection is that there is no index with page numbers. It does have "Table I" etc. - with a name and description but no page number.

    The color covered version is the 1810 version. It starts with a one page index of tables, names, and page numbers. This is followed by another listing of the table names and more details.
    I'd think the color covered version would be easier to use because of the index.

    I have not gone into the details of the tables themselves.
