Navigation without electronics

Hello All,

Thanks for your great advice. Actually I'm trying to find my position without the use of any electronics. So the tip with HO249 was great. For anybody who is looking for either 249 or 229. Actually the Starpath book is using the HO249 tables, which are SIGHT REDUCTION TABLES FOR AIR NAVIGATION.

I got my 2010 almanac from Amazon. But its kind of from the UK Hydrographic Office. But the Sight Reduction Table are showing different values than the HO ones.

I'll check it out on the weekend. I will try to find this position:
N37.76579, W123.10245. No worries...I'll bring a GPS as well.
