    Been there, done that...
    but the guy at:
     has done such a wonderful job, and since he makes his registered Visual
    Basic version available for only $20, I threw my home-made one away and now
    have his loaded on my laptop.  It has every feature I could ever want.
    Write your own if you are looking for a challenge (I must confess I enjoyed
    the programming challenge myself), but if you just want to produce the same
    output on your computer, pay the $20.  You won't be disappointed.  If you're
    into Celestial Nav. and have a computer, his program is great fun.  It's
    wonderfully layed out.  Beside the almanac features, it does sight reduction
    (even doing it backwards yielding an expected instrument reading which is
    great when you are just doing some instrument testing) and plotting on
    charts you can add (or even make with his chart maker program that comes
    with it), a sky chart you can animate (backwards and forward) at any speed,
    plus a GPS interface that allows you to see your position (via a litle boat
    icon) realtime.

    Thanks for the link. My real goal is to be able to produce the same output
    on my own computer. I am a fairly good programmer and would like to have an
    nautical almanac in my computer on my sailboat.
