    Re: TI-36X Pro degrees minutes seconds conversion

    Using the TI-36 Pro op function to autimatically generate calculated altitude Hc in degrees minutes and seconds:

    Different name latitude and declination  (  270°<LHA<90° )

    2nd set op

    op=inv sin((cos(x)cos(d)cos(t) - sin(x)sin(d))>DMS      note: to enter DMS press math scroll right to DMS scroll up once enter

    Same name latitude and declination  ( 270°<LHA<90° )

    op=inv sin((cos(x)cos(d)cos(t) + sin(x)sin(d))>DMS

    Enter variables as degrees + minutes/60:

    Latitude        STO x

    Declination  STO d

    LHA t           STO t

    2nd op  answer will be calculated altitude in degrees minutes and seconds.

    To view all variables press 2nd recall

    I am recieving your private e-mails. Replys are coming back to me as not delivered. We can contiue discussions on TI-36X Pro functions as they relate to CN sight reduction right here . 

    Yes it is possible to get Hc output in degrees minutes and seconds automatically but it requires switching the Hc formula from num-solv  with the Z formula in op and entering the assumed latitude directly as the variable by pressing sto then variable x . I do not recommend doing this because there is an increased chance of making an entry mistake without saving any sight reduction time.
