I've found the USNO Navigational Star Chart to be very helpful in planning star shots but am wondering if it the chart can be used for other purposes such as;
- determining GHA Aries for when a body will be at a certain altitude
I've tried putting a parallel rules across on a diagonal so that they touch 180 and 360 (or 0 and 180) and moving them around to obtain a fairly close GHA Aries can be used for, say, when Sirius is just on the horizon (converting to LHA).
I'm probably doing something wrong.
