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

    Brad,

    The index of the 1962 Bowditch I just grabbed off the shelf has over a page worth of sight reduction methods listed.  Dozens of these methods are tabular, but not all reached a significant level of popularity.  Bowditch devotes 11 lines to HO203/HO204, typical of the less popular methods.  I think Bob was trying to list only the most popular methods.  Perhaps adding a line would help, saying that there are dozens of other tabular methods, but the ones listed are the most popular.

    HO203/HO204 were published in 1923, maybe one of the first tabular methods given an HO number, but many of the tabular methods listed in Bowditch predate it. 

    Stan
