Stark Tables For Clearing The Lunar Distance

Navigation historian Bruce Stark has devoted many years to perfecting this modern version of Lunar Distance tables. To our knowledge, there are no other versions of this type of table in print today, although tables of this type were indeed the mainstay of navigation up till about 1900. They can be used by navigators for practicing the old ways, or they can indeed be used to find your longitude today without GMT.

Practice with "lunars" is certainly an aerobatic flight in the world of celestial navigation, but those who do it become the very best celestial navigators, in part because accurate sights are required as well as careful analysis.
