A bright modern approach to astro navigation, for those wanting a little more than just a textbook to pass an exam.
Beginning with a brief outline of the solar system, this is a step-by-step guide to finding your position on the ocean, both with and without a pocket calculator for working out sights. And to assist novices in star recognition, the outstanding colour illustrations will prove a real boon.
Very well illustrated but the small format of this book means that we ancients will need our reading specs.
Full colour illustrations.
