In Ron's original setup, he asked which bodies would provide the "best" two-body fix and which would provide the "best" three-body fix. There are certain "standard operating procedures" answers to these questions, and there is also room for judgment. For a two-body fix, is there any circumstance where you woul choose Antares and Rigil Kentaurus (which are relatively close together in azimuth --usually a bad thing)?
