Re: Celestial Nevigation - Book recommendations sought
, the US Navy still uses Bowditch. The course I took used Mixter. Blewitt's book looked interesting, so I got it too. They all seem to work. Now all I need is my own sextant...
I seem to recall hearing that they recently stopped teaching celestial navigation at Annapolis. If they don't teach it there, I doubt the rest of the Navy does either.
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
