Sight reduction tables

Does anyone know where you can find site reduction tables online, free? and not a site that does the calculations I need to take them with me.

National Geospatial Intelligenca Agency Maritime Safety Information portal (wheew).

Main Page:
Maritime Safety Information

Choose publications on the left, then on the dropdown menu select "sight reduction tables for maritime navigation" then select the volume you want.

Sight reduction tables:
Maritime Safety Information

Also available free to download are Chart No.1 and American Practical Navigator "Bowditch" (among other publications). Both can be found in the same publications dropdown menu. DO NOT try to download each chapter individually there is a selection in the "download publication" area for the complete download of each. It doesn't stand out very easily, but look for something like this The American Practical Navigator (35 MB) just above the individual chapter download dropdown menu.

I know the site isn't user friendly, but if you spend some time with it, you'll find everything you need....FREE

Oh, and for sight reduction tables, you have to find the volume you want, select view, then choose the entire pub from the menu which will inlude individual chapters also.

It will look something like this:

Interpolation Table 2 (15 KB)
Introduction (583 KB)
Table Title Page (5 KB)
Tables: Part 1 (Pages 2-47) (596 KB)
Part 2 (Pages 48-93) (658 KB)
Part 3 (Pages 94-139) (664 KB)
Part 4 (Pages 140-183) (630 KB)
Part 5 (Pages 184-229) (597 KB)
Part 6 (Pages 230-275) (659 KB)

Part 8 (Pages 322-365) (634 KB)

Not that i know of. It is made with some data from Her Majestys Nautical Almanac, which maintains copywrite on the data it contributes. I think that is what keeps it from being made available free to US citizens. I think it costs about $40

You can get the NA paper version either from the UKHO or the US commercial version for a lot less.
