Been there, done that, swear by it.
It's funny, someone told me that today. I'm going to check it out. I just took my first sight yesterday and wrote down all the info + GPS coordinates and I am currently going through the DVD Celestial Navigation Simplified to try out the sun sight process and see how close I got. After getting good with the tables and all of the different types of sights, then I want to mess with the formulas a little for sight reduction instead of using the tables, but that's for later. Definitely some really cool stuff!
