    There is another excellent choice, apparently forgotten
    in this discussion:
    "Complete on-board Celestial Navigator",
    which includes 5-years almanach, and pretty convenient
    site reduction tables and much more.
    All in one small volume.
    The accuracy is better than 1 minute.
    When I go to Europe for a summer, with little
    chance of a week or so of sailing,
    I carry a pocket sextant (much smaller than a plastic one),
    this book and a pocket calculator.
    This is enough for 1' accuracy.
