ANALYSIS OF THE CELESTIAL PLOT IN MARINE NAVIGATION

Ernest B. Brown

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: INTRODUCTION THE ANGUISH NAVIGATORS sometimes experience before estimating the most probable position from several lines of position to establish the celestial fix position could be lessened through investigation of very simple error study techniques. Such investigation applied to a particularly questionable plot could have happy results. One school of thought is that any error study is too time consuming and perhaps even too complicated for use by the practical navigator. Another is that there is insufficient quantity of data associated with routine celestial observations to establish a fix to justify any error analysis.
