A PROPOSAL FOR A NEW METHOD OF CELESTIAL SIGHT REDUCTION AND LINE-OF-POSITION PLOTTING

Dan N. Hurwitz

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: THE TASK OF PRODUCING a line-of-Position from a celestial observation is essentially a clerical one. It is a dull and repetitive job fraught with opportunities for error. It is timeconsuming for the professional. It is laborious for the novice and tricky to master. It is not surprising, therefore, that navigators have stead-fastly sought to whittle down the job by improving their methods and instrumentation.
