On Line Astro Navigation support 

In certain sea areas, the only secondary position fixing resource available may be Astro navigation. Using the internet and sight reduction software, we can process your sights ashore and return them to you. This will assist you in practising your use of the sextant and tabular methods. In addition, sights plotted on your operational chart can be used to cross compare with GPS. (and detect possible failure) Additional coaching materials are included as part of the service. (see profile page) Cost approximately 50 euro per day. (morning stars, sunrise, sun run sun, sunset and evening stars including cumulative plot.)
