    Good on ya, Cliff, but the point is: what percentage of your sights result in
    your actual position falling within the 3 intersecting LOPs?
    
    You can carry on using sun sights to give you 3 LOPs over the course of the
    day, ideally with quite different azimuths. Since your DR (actual position)
    doesn't change, you can plot them together on the one plotting sheet.
    
    Let us know ..
