Re: Online Almanac and Sight Declination Tables?
The United States Power Squadron offers excellent courses on Navigation.
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!
