    Frank Reed, Gary LaPook, Brad Morris & Davis Fleming:

    Thanks all for your attention. By the way Frank, I can spell, it's the typing that presents problems. In any case, you are forgiven.

    Re various queries, please note the following.

    24 Sept:

    AM shot 10:14;26 EDST, no watch error
    Hs 37D 22.6M
    HE 10'
    IC 1.5M ON
    Zn 91D

    PM shot 15:29:55 EDST, no watch error
    Hs 39D 59,6M
    HE 10'
    IC 1.4 ON
    Zn 269D

    Time between shots = 5 + hours, which should provide a sufficient spread, no?

    26 Sept

    AM shot 10:11:37 EDST, no watch error
    Hs 36D 27.2M
    HE 10'
    IC 1.8 ON
    Zn 92D

    PM shot 16:01:48 EDST, no watch error
    Hs 33D 54.0M
    HE 10'
    IC 2.9
    Zn 268D

    Time between shots, almost 6 hours, which should provide a sufficient spread.

    I will do more shots tomorrow, that being Friday, noting compass headings. Variation hereabouts is 10 D West, as I recall.

    If the local library has a scanner, I could probably send the calculation sheets, I use USPS Sight Reduction Form SR 96a

    Thanks again all, for your attention.

    Alan
