    I enclose two plots with MPPs and 95% confidence ellipses around twelve
    random LOPS and a third plot.
    
    Plotx2 and plotx3 are identical, except that x3  is a 25% ellipse.
    
    These suggest to me that rather than *carefully* taking one sight on one
    body (at a time), it would be better to take three or four sights in rapid
    succession on each body and let statistical sampling clean up the mess.
