    Not exactly "pinwheeling"
    From: Randall Morrow
    Date: 2011 Oct 21, 11:05 -0700

    It's not "pin-wheeling" but it is getting better.
    This is the plot of this mornings round of sights: (10/21/2011)

    My AP was W119* , N35*.
    My actual position, from a web site based on a street address, is W119*5', N35*19'.  (I don't own a GPS)
    The sextant is a Davis Mark 15, using a levelled mirror a.h and a digital level only accurate to 1/10 degree.
    The intercept distances ranged from 0.3 miles to 32 miles.
    My moon sights always seem to be the worst of the bunch.  
    Thanks to all for your help and patience.
