    Yes, I almost always use the WGS84 datum.

    Interesting test and impressive results for that sextant.
    
    Your data made me wonder about which
    horizontal datum is best to be used in the GPS
    for this kind of test.
    
    I assume that WGS84, being a global datum
    - as apposed to local datums used in charts -
    is best and closest to the spheric model used
    in celnav. But I'm not sure.
