Celestial Navigation in a teacup

Year: 2009
Language: english
Author: E.Farley
Genre: Reference book
Edition: 2nd Edition
Format: PDF
Quality: eBook
Pages count: 94
Description: This book is dedicated simply to removing the cloak of mystery; to teach the concepts, some interesting history, the techniques, and computational methods using the simple pocket scientific calculator. And how to build your own navigational tools.
Book to be used as a self-teaching tool for those who have a desire to learn celestial from the intuitive, academic, and practical points
of view. This book should also interest experienced navigators who are tired of simply ‘turning the crank’ with tables and would like a better behind-the-scenes knowledge. With the prevalence of hand electronic calculators, the traditional methods of using sight-reduction tables with pre-computed solutions will hardly be mentioned here.
