Re: Online Almanac and Sight Declination Tables?

Have fun with it, but I'll submit that someone else is giving you the formulas, so you're just doing basic math. The hard core math is determining the table that you are looking to acquire. Imagine that? I don't think a computer doing the basic math is cheating all that much, but I understand if someone wants the no electricity approach. You are going to find that taking good sightings is the real talent, not crunching numbers. I would want to spend more time doing the former.
