    Tabular sight reduction software
    From: Dave Walden
    Date: 2005 Oct 12, 15:52 -0700

    After lurking for months and hundreds of very helpful
    messages, have made a first attempt at using a list
    server.
    
    Hope this makes it.
    
    I have been pursuing an interest in various tabular
    sight reduction methods, ho201, 211, 214, 229, 249,
    concise nautical almanac, etc.  I've written excel
    versions of most. I recently ran accross a web site
    with some very interesting programs.  It contains
    about a dozen files with windows executables and basic
    SOURCE code (!) that reproduce various tabular
    methods. (Including those listed.) There isn't much
    text on the site, so it's hard to google it.

    An aside:
    A very interesting book from the time when GHA was
    just  coming into the Naut Alm along with RA.
    Includes many example calculation of methods prior to
    LOP. (and so cheap!)
