Hi Frank and others,
Based on Frank's idea, I'm providing this hypothetical scenario for a sight. Let me know your suggestions for a sun sight with tables. I'll try to work it out, fill out the form and post screen shots of them all. I'm guessing I'll plot out some plotting sheets, or use the chart I have (see below).
