Description

Celestial Navigation Simplified with William F. Buckley, Jr.

Running Time: 40 minutes.

In this video, Buckley takes on the challenge of simplifying celestial navigation. He gives the viewer just enough concept but sticks primarily to the procedure, like a chef explaining the steps in a recipe. Buckley demonstrates the following steps:

1. Take a Sight of the sun with your sextant.
2. Get your Geographical Position from the Air Almanac.
3. Select an Apparent Position along a line of latitude.
4. Refer to the Sight Reduction Tables to draw a Line of Position.
5. Plot your Exact Position.

Buckley was a TV personality for many years. His smooth and reassuring voice, coupled with straight forward visuals, will guide you through his simplified process. Celestial Navigation Simplified is a great resource for any sailor interested in learning and mastering this centuries old skill.
