    Re: accuracy of automatic celestial navigation

    Thanks to all. George Huxtable and Walter Guinan both accidentally
    wrote off list, and Paul on list,  pointing out that the principle of
    equivalence precludes the accelerometers distinguishing gravity from
    acceleration. Since that principle is the underlying basis of
    relativity, my question was way off the mark.
    
    My only excuse is that if anyone else had the same problem, it is now
    well straightened out.
