On21st Jan 2008 AM, in DR 24˚ 36.0’ S 110˚ 20.0’ W,the sextant altitude of the Suns’sLL was 85˚ 03.5’. If IE was 1.6’ off the arc and HE was 10m, find the latitude and state the direction of the PL (LOP).
On 1st Sept 2008, in DR equator 50˚ 27.0’ E, the sextant meridian altitude of the sun’s UL was 82˚ 10.4’. If IE was 2.4’ on the arc and HE was 17m, required the latitude and the PL (LOP).
In 3rd problem how to find true altitude position if lat is not given
How to find dec is greater than lat or dec smaller than lat
Where can I find a free 2008 Nautical Almanac (NP314-08). Thanks.
u can google it
Please explain how to decide true altitude position N or S when DR lat is not given
True alt N or S is same as azimuth at mer pass
How can identify that true alt “s” or N”
it is named North or South, with respect to observer and the declination, if observer is north and declination is south then Cel body is south, so you can use this.
In the 5th solutions how the sextant altitude is 61°27.5′. I couldn’t understand
same as bearing
