    I doubt it.
    
    Astronomer friends of mine all use the Astronomical Almanac rather than the
    Nautical Almanac.  They cannot stand the use of hour angles but instead
    greatly prefer right ascension.  The tables of the Astronomical Almanac are
    written in their language, not ours, so to speak.

    Dan, is it possible that a large number of the NAs being printed are going to 
    some other field (like astronomy or horology) so that
    "simply" counting them is vastly overcounting the number going for navigation purposes?
