    Re: Programs that produce LOP plots

    I should have mentioned that I have seen a very nice iPad app "Celestial by Navimatics" that seems very complete and produces LOP plots.   It is claimed that it works for iPhone, too, but that may be squeezing too much into a 3" screen.   And $19.99, which is less than 1/6 of the price of Starpilot.

    Lu, Starpilot does, but it's not free. There is a version for iPhone.

    There are several programs out there that do sight reductions, ranging from a free app I have on my iPhone that does just the Law of Cosines reduction, you have to supply LHA and Dec to Stan K's quite nice Celestial Tools program for the PC.

    But ... all these end with intercept and azmuth.   Is there a program out there (preferably free/shareware) that will go all the way to offering some sort of plot of one's DR position and the LOP resulting from the sight?
