    Chris,

    Take a look at the screen shot I sent of the Celestial Tools HO 229 output for your sight.  At the bottom there are three items.  The one of interest is the DR-LOP distance.  This is an indication of the accuracy of your sight, which, in this case, was pretty good, at 0.7 nm Toward.

    Stan

    Thank you Frank and everyone else who responded to my post.  I think I understand my confusion - the computer program is great for checking the accuracy of an individual sight, but using the table requires plotting a fix to judge the accuracy of the sights.
