    Re: Sun Altitude/Azimuth by 2102-D

    Just print it out and tape to the back of your 2102-D. When you cross the equator peal it off and stick it on the other side.
    Of course another way to determine which stars will be available to shoot at evening twilight is to go outdoors in the eventing the day before you begin your voyage and note what stars are up there, they will be there the next night too.

    If you can't immediately identify a star at evening twilight shoot it anyway, if it is bright it will be one of the stars in the almanac and you can figure it out later.

    Morning twilight is never a problem since you have all night to identify the stars.
