    Gary,

    It looks like FN mislabeled Denebola as Alphecca. Denobola was used a few hours later on the plot. Working a reduction for UT 0432 has the azimuth at 90.9* Hc 28* 43'. Not sure how 80* was derived as an azimuth. If UT 0332 is used for Denebola then the azimuth is 82.7*. FN is the most likely plotter on both the Pacific and Atlantic charts based on the two unique 4's that show up on each chart. His 4 looks like an X on many of the DR times with others looking normal.
