    Hi Shawn,

    Thanks for the images of the plot and reduction. The reduction, I have to say, is a bit alien to me since I have never used the slide-rule method of reduction. Still the results are quite close to both my reduction and the GPS fix, so we can't quibble.

    I don't have too many sights from this year, as the weather wasn't so great out there this last trip, but if you want more, along with some unusual sights to reduce, check the archives of this list. In 2011 I did a trip nearly half way around the world and took over 1000 individual observations at sea. I have posted a number of them.
