    Solutions to Gray's 100 Problems (Problem 1-1)
    From: Parsa

    Hi, I'm new to the list.
    Speaking of the moon... I am working through Leonard Gray's book One
    Hundred Problems in Celestial Navigation. I calculated and plotted all
    the sights for the stars, the moon's lower limb, and Venus for the
    first problem (1-1). My solutions for the stars and Venus seem OK, but
    my line-of-position for the moon seems quite a ways off. I get a
    pretty good solution without the moon (not more than one minute off of
    the given answer, and that's using an 8.5 x 11 plotting sheet).
    Is there anyone that has saved their solution to this in notes
    somewhere? I would like to see if it is supposed to be so far off, or
    if I left out one of the many corrections for the moon. The stars
    using Pub 249 were sure much easier!
    Secondly, does anyone know of any online celnav worksheet forms? I
    downloaded the ones by Harold Arsem from the celestialnavigation.net
    website, but I thought I would find more on the internet than just a
    couple forms.
