    To my recent suggestion about the quintant-
    
    >> It also gives a navigator a better chance of nulling-out anomalous dip
    >> by measuring two apparent altitudes of a body: the altitude measured
    >> up from the horizon below it, and the altitude measured up from the
    >> opposite horizon. This would become possible for bodies up to 30 deg.
    >> altitude.

    >Did you mean to say "30 deg and up"?
    
    And, of course, that is indeed what I should have said. Sorry about that,
    and thanks to Mike.
    
    George.
