    Try the attached file.  I wrote it for USPS navigation classes, so it
    probably has more than you need.  It is a DOS program.  It also does solar
    phenomena to help you determine when you want to do the star finding.
    Operation should be self-explanatory.  It was originally written for a
    Commodore 64, so it is not very elegant, but it works well enough.  (The
    thing about having the volume up is left over from the C64, where you could
    go get a cup of coffee and the beep would tell you when it was done
    calculating.)  Coincidentally, just yesterday I received an e-mail from
    someone who found a bug in the program, but he was using an older version, so
    the bug may have been exterminated.  In any case, if you discover any bugs or
    have any questions, let me know.
