This 2 day, 12-hour (+/-) seminar will introduce celestial navigation concepts, discuss and explain the relevant terms, and examine the methodology and calculations for capturing a sun sight and manually “reducing” the sight using the Nautical Almanac and Sight Reduction Tables (HO 229) to calculate an estimated position (EP) or “Sun Line”. Universal Plotting Sheets are explained, and running fix methodology will be used to finalize and plot a Celestial Fix using the Sun. A sextant is NOT required. Types and costs of sextants will be discussed during the class.
