Amazon just delivered a sextant. Now I need a class, book. Attempting to de-tech backup, as in, got a woodstove-oven backup . Your program might help me. Aloha, fave Whiner Drama QueenI have developed a computer program to calculate the line of position (LOP) as a function of the latitude of the observer, and the altitude and parameters of the star. The output is the Greenwhich hour angle of the observer.
