    Re: Winter Sextant Sight Accuracy?
    From: Jared Sherman

    And those 14�C amount to 2/10 mile of difference in position from a sight 
    reduction here, from the sample numbers I just ran at Ho 11�30' and 0�C /vs/ 
    14�C but a difference of 4/10th mile when Ho is down to 5�30'.
    
    So the temperature difference alone can be .2-.4 mile if not factored 
    correctly under winter conditions at 43N on a late afternoon.
    
    But not to digress...the basic question was and still is, what kind of 
    position accuracy is anyone else getting with winter sextant sights at 
    lattitudes above 40� ?
