    Dear Jim,
    Thanks for the reference!  I have acquired the article and I will read it with interest.

    I also followed Gary's archive link.  A quick look convinces me that I should quit posting questions and mine the nav-list archive.  It appears all knowledge is already there.

    Best regards,
    Patrick

    I discussed it thoroughly in my Navigation paper, Position from Observation of a Single Body, available in archives somewhere. It probably tells you more than you want to know. A simpler approach is in my recent book, The Noon Fix.
