    Robert, you wrote:

    It does not really lend itself too well to back-of-the-envelope
    calculations. Still I have never found this to be an impediment."
    Thanks. And I agree. Also, every time I have messed around with HO211, I
    have had to re-learn the steps, but it's not difficult, and in any emergency
    where celestial might be the best position-finding backup, I don't think I
    would worry about spending an hour brushing up on the tables.
