    Yes,
    I missed this point.
    At the time of Columbus, "Star Almanach"
    (Regiomontan Tables)
    was mainly published for astrologers.
    It would be interesting to know how many
    of them go to astrologers now:-)
    
    I conjecture that there are much more
    astrologers in the world now
    than CelNav igators:-(
    
    So maybe sextant sales are a better indicator
    after all. (Though, according to Celestaire,
    some corporations buy sextants for decoration
    purposes).
    
    Alex.
