    Umland's guide to celestial navigation.
    From: George Huxtable
    Date: 2003 Jun 11, 19:42 +0100

    Thanks to Doug Royer for bringing to my attention (and the list's) chapter
    7 of Henning Umland's "Guide to Celestial Navigation.
    
    And thanks to Bill Arden for providing a web address
    "www.celestialnavigation.net" which gives a pointer to that guide and much,
    much, more. A real mine of information!
    
    But I can now give an address from which you can download, free, the
    complete guide.
    This is http://home.t-online.de/home/h.umland/page2.htm
    
    I've downloaded and printed it out (it's in pdf format).  I haven't done
    more than scan through it yet, but it's obviously very thorough and
    well-explained. Umling doesn't shy away from using maths, glad to say.
    
    Both Bruce Stark and I disagree with the thrust of Umland's lunar method in
    chapter 7, as we have stated to this list, but otherwise I think it could
    be a valuable resource for information about astro-nav. It will certainly
    repay a detailed study.
