    Re: Where in the world am I

    Solved the problem as follows.

    I took 3 stars arbitrary Mirfak, Canopus, Peacock (could not find triad with 120° separation).
    Typed the info of the 3 stars in TI-89 Starpilot with DR 0° 0° this resulted in a fix 7°59`S 15°04`W.

    Redid the calculation of the stars with the fix as DR, new fix = 7°54,9`S 14°23,3`W.
    Well acceptable result for me.

    Others who used there calculator for solving the fix?

    Regards,

    HermanD
