    You might prefer Weems New Line of Position Book since each page of the tables are arranged by latitude, all the way to 90 degrees, not by hour angle, and the declinations go all the way to 90 degrees. These tables are convenient because you and put a tab on the latitude page that you use most often and all your sights can be worked from that one page in table "A." The downside is that the size of the book is larger than the original tables but an upside is that the print size is bigger (for our older eyes.) See what I wrote before about this and see photos of the two books at




    I have that book. At the tail end of the book is a section called: "Extended Tables for the Line of Position Book - Polar Edition"

    Is this the Table you are referring to? It lists latitudes 60 to 90. If so, drop me a note. I will scan them in over the next day or so and get them out to you.
