One point. Might we be better off calling the PZX triangle the 'Celestial Triangle', or simply the PZX triangle, because the 'Navigational Triangle' could also be used when talking about any sperical triangle on the Earth.
In thr RAF the terms were always very practically related to what you saw on your chart, in your tables, or through your eyepiece, so it was co-lat, co-dec, & co-alt. To find a great circle distance, it was co-lat, ch-long, & co-lat. DaveP
