    I am somewhat surprised at the time and space being devoted to Azimuth Tables lately. There were enough such tables printed at one time to satisfy most any taste and to establish an entirely new List devoted solely to The Azimuth.. To name but a few from memory, they included

    The Red Azimith Tables (HO 71) + expanded volume for artic use

    The Blue Azimuth Tables (HO ?) which extended the above for higher declinations

    Cugles Two Minute Azimuth Tables which were popular in the US MM during WWII

    Lecky's ABC Tables

    Burwood's Tables

    Most all short tabular methods as a bi-product of the intercept solution, except Martelli's original tables for the Time Sight solution

    The English, Germans, Spanish, and Italians all published their own tables in varied formats

    Pure trigonometrical solutions were also used as a bi-product of the Time Sight and Marc St Hillaire intercept method, and in many circumstances proved the most expedient, although many would use a separate set of tables to calculate the azimuth - why, I could never imagine.
