    Paul, the Nautical Almanac of today have sight-reduction table in the rear, it has been there last 20 years, if you bought your LTA from celestaire it is the same table you now have.
    main advantage is that Kolbe LTA is good until 2050, a regular NA is only for the year printed on the cover, only real downside is no moon data, that would make you truly independent (lunars for time...).

    I made an interesting "find" while skimming through "Celestial Navigation in a Teacup", it has the "S-table" in the rear.
    I admit that the "S-table" does not have the simplest table layout nor is the form the simplest to complete.
    the good thing is that it is enough to navigate anywhere on this planet, it allow you to do so with reasonable accuracy, you can use any visible bodies you can identify and have Declination and Hourangle for.
    all that in only 9 pages.
