    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

    Ah, but here we have the most stringent of taste when it comes to azimuth tables, Henry.  We demand that they should be of the most exquisite perfection, or carry bold warnings of their infirmities.  This, for us, is a matter of some importance.

    So to assist us in our quest towards azimuth table perfection, can you tell us whether all or any of the tables you proffer are afflicted in some way?  Or how they work their magic - which data are required to enter them; on which formula are they based?

    We understand that generations of seamen used such tables in the past, and that these tables were the least of their worries, but here we are gentlemen of a different ilk.
