    David,

    Ageton Classic is the method name  I settled on  ( not Ageton/Rudzinski ).  See link to old posts for PDF tables and examples.

    You may want to first revisit the trig log sight reduction method as shown in Hewitt Schlereths's book Common Sense Celestial Navigation.

    I am a little confused about the Ageton methods. I have searched the forum and found several topics:

    Ageton/Bayless

    Ageton Classic

    Classic Trig Log SR with Ageton

    I am guessing that that the methods are

    HO 211 1938  The original publication. (I have a copy)

    Ageton/Bayless, which in later editions included the Sadler technique. I do not know how this differs from 1938 Ageton.

    Ageton/Rudzinski which uses Ageton's tables but is a simpler method.

    Then there is Ageton Classic which to me means Ageton 1938 but the context suggests Ageton/Rudinski.

    Can someone please explain how the various methods fit together. In particular  what do I need to download to try the improved Ageton method that I have seen reference to.
