In one of thre previous mail I shortly described how I want to select best stars for a given latitude and LHA. Here I post some example for 51°N and 180 <= LHA < 185, and 270 <= LHA < 285. For each LHA I selected these six stars that are placed the best onto the triangle lattice. In each line one can see Hc and Zn. I only took into account stars for which 15° < Hc < 70°.
I think that set of six stars should allow to select three even if some clouds would be in the sky. What do you think about such selection?
