    It is very easy to “fall hopelessly in love” with the data staring you in the face. Especially if you or your personal team recorded/acquired it.  I learned very early (the hard way) everything must be really checked and confirmed in a couple of different ways.
     
    I claim it is just for fun or mental exercise, but when I do a sight reduction I use two or three methods on same data: HO 249, hand calculator, Weems 1927.  Old habits die hard.
     
    Best regards to all. Happy Summer in Northern Hemisphere.....we deserve it!
