    Slocum's lunars AND...
    From: Ken James

    I just got back from helping to deliver a sailboat across the Gulf of Mexico, was going to brush up on my noon sights along with the skipper/owner who is a good celestial navigator, but it worked out I was always in my bunhk at the wrong time...oh well, next time!
    I have learned a LOT from the postings Re: slocams lunars... 
    OK, here's an idea I've played with, maybe someone can tell me if it has been done already. Not to be 'sacreligious', but I thought of using a digital camera, low light model if need be, and taking a time and date stamped image of the sky through a lens that would capture most of it, then using a program to automaticaly compute your position...been done, I bet, but by who?-Ken
