    I have attached the "Q" table from the 2013 Air Almanac, this is all you need for reducing Polaris shots.

    Brad,
    I pulled the Dutton's off my bookshelf (dusted copiously :-) and it is a 1969 edition which has sight reduction forms designed for Pub 214 :( What I did find was a form for reducing Polaris by Nautical Almanac (see attached) which may be useful for the USCG sample problem # 1.

    Dutton's Navigation and Piloting has an appendix "The Complete Celestial Solution Using HO229" which includes a form, using planets, moon, sun and stars.
    The form also includes double second corrections.
    Perhaps you have a copy on your bookshelf.
