    I am attaching a revised MOO table for your ship, 18 knots and a 5 minute period that you can use for advancing your LOPs and for figuring the slope method for eliminating random error. For different time periods just multiply the listed adjustments for the actual time period.

    It is a critical table like the refraction table in the N.A. and based on the relative bearing to the star. The relative bearings are in degrees and the adjustments are in minutes of arc. For bodies ahead use the left RB column and the sign is plus when the adjustment is made to the Ho as is normal marine practice. If the body is abaft the beam then use the right column and the sign is minus.
