    U-boat Celestial Navigation WWII
    From: Jerry Mason
    Date: 2016 Jan 7, 06:35 -0800

    I am a retired USN pilot and administrator of the uboatarchive.net website.  I want to learn to use my sextant (which to now I had used only with the aid of a computer) as U-boat navigators did.  I have gotten as a far as my first sun sights reduced with HO229 - so far so good.  I understand that U-boat Navigators probably used a Nautical Almanac plus the F-Tafel for sight reduction.  If anyone has some insight or references I would like to get in touch.  My e-mail is s3bpilot{at}telus.net  Best Regards, Jerry
