    The Moon and stars seem to form a relatively small triangle considering the cloud dodging you had to do to get this round completed. Double check Altair. The post has the sextant altitude Hs at 57* 58.4' which was about a degree off the assumed position. A 56* 58.4' Hs works out great. A micrometer drum misread perhaps ?
