    Re: hiding stars

    You may have figured your LHA of Aries incorrectly for your morning 2102-D set or possibly used the south side of the base disc. Right now morning Sirius is quite prominent at an altitude of 35° and azimuth of 210°. Set your 35N blue template to LHA 127° for tomorrow morning. In addition to a 2102-D use a Pub 249 vol. 1 to help select stars. Check out amazon.com for good buys on used pubs. Remember also that the Nautical Almanac times are Zone times so daylight savings time requires adding an hour. Add another 8 minutes to allow for being 2° west of your 75° zone meridian. Give a round of stars a shot between 0630 and 0700 tomorrow morning. Good luck.
