    Re: S-tables: where to have a look at them?

    By Stan's last email, I infer that you were the last person to update the tabular methods Wikipedia article.  I meant nothing personal about you and your efforts.  I was unaware that the current version of the article was your effort.  I feel confident that someone will be along shortly to mangle what you have written.

    My technical comment remains true.  The article does not reference HO203/HO204, among the very first of tabular methods.  It is a complete solution, like HO249 and HO249.

    You might want to consider adding Gary's "favorite", Weems Line of Position Book, to the list of tabular methods.

    The article, or at least the list of tabular methods, has now been cleaned up:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sight_reduction#Tabular_sight_reduction.  With a few additions and dates added.
    It does need revision, yes. Right now that article is a bit of an orphan that gets very little traffic, and it has had little editing in the time since it was created by Andres Ruiz back in the summer of 2015. The article is misleading in many ways. It was an attempt to publicize the hav-Doniol method of sight reduction, severely distorting the significance of that method at the expense of history and common practice.
