Hello all, a few months ago I posted about wanting to use my sextant like a U-boat Navigator. In the months since I have obtained the F-Tafel, a book with the German WWII era sight reduction tables, and a copy of the German 1941 Nautical Almanac. I created a set of pages with links to download PDF versions of these publications and view translations of the introductory pages with notes on the various tables. You will also find a summary of the sight reduction procedure (with or without notes), sight reduction forms (in German and English) and a set of sample problems intended to explore the use of the various tables. http://uboatarchive.net/F-Tafel/Navigation.htm I am only a beginner in celestial navigation and would appreciate any comments, corrections or suggestions from the group.
