    Re: Status of Celestial Nav in 2015

    On my opinion, one cannot justify CelNav
    by any "practical need" like backup of GPS etc.
    There is no doubt one can navigate effectively without it.
    I think the true reason why people do it is completely different.
    It is similar to the reason why people sail under sails.
    No one justifies this by any practical advantages of traveling under sail
    in comparison with taking an airplane, or a motor ship.
    Motor ships and airplanes take you from one place to another faster,
    cheaper, safer and and with more comfort.
    Nevertheless many people sail sailboats. Because it is fun by itself,
    not because it is an effective mean of transportation.
    Same with Cel Nav.
