    Re: Transcript Of Worsleys Navigational Log Book

    Correction!

    In my last post I wrote 

    "29th April, bottom left, there is a transformation from time 3h22m6s to arc 50°31'34" that correctly should be 50°31'30". Either you have misread, or Worsley perhaps looked at the line for 7s instead of 6s if he used some table for the conversion."

    That last statement of 7s instead of 6s is of course erroneous. 1s of time corresponds to 15" of longitude. So there is no plausible explanation to arrive at 34".
