Nice graph of sight reduction methods.
I do have a question. You put Lunar method under Longitude. I thought a lunar was used only to get a crude GMT ( GAT ) and that that time hack could be used as if from a clock. Historicaly the lunar method was used before the Sumner line so was used with a time sight to get longitude but can the lunar time hack be used like any other time hack with the St. Hilaire and HO 249?
Thanks. John H.
