SIGHT REDUCTION TABLES FOR ORBITAL PLANE DETERMINATION

William P. Devereux

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: IT CAN BE SHOWN that the geometry of the solubion for orbital plane parameters is identical in part t’o that of the determination of a geographical fix from star altitude sightings. One standard technique used in air navigation has been adapted to the determination of orbital plane parameters. The sample tables prepared have been checked out using actual sexta.nt sightings made aboard Gemini VII.
