    Re: S-table and long term almanacs

     As has been been pointed out by several other members, they are finicky to use, which is the last thing you want at sea. 

    Respectfully, Roger 

    Respectfully, Roger, the NAO table are very easy to use if you use the Starpath workform which is included in my Long Term Almanac and which is used for the examples therein. As with any system, familiarity is the key to facility in its use. Once familiarity is attained with the Starparth workform for the NAO tables, you should find that you can produce Hc and Zn to plot your position line in around 3 minutes. I think this will be pretty much the par for any short form method.
