To the uninitiated, celestial navigation appears to be a somewhat frightening exercise. In fact, the maximum mathematics involved in the new sight reduction systems is the addition of three lines of figures. Similarly, the apparent complexities of the solar and stellar systems take on a less frightening appearance when related to the lighthouses and similar earthly objects used for coastal navigation. Throughout this book, the author uses such a comparison between earthly and heavenly objects in explaining the close relationship between coastal and celestial navigation. The book concentrates on the plotting of the boat's position by sun, planets and stars when out of sight of land.
