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?
