    Sight Reduction: Sight reduction is the mathematical solution of the spherical celestial triangle which provides the navigator with a geographical line of position from a celestial observation. As done by the mariner, it was a twenty minute procedure, adequate for slow moving ships, but not suitable for aircraft. Home» Books/Software» Sight Reduction» HO Marine Navigation.

      Most schools and manuals teach celestial navigation on a rote, cook book basis. Take a shot, look up numbers in an almanac, look up more numbers in a sight reduction table, make small adjustments and corrections all along the way, and out drops an answer that you can plot on a chart in the form of a line of position. The Sight Reduction Tables for Air Navigation consist of three volumes of comprehensive tables of altitude and azimuth designed for the rapid reduction of astronomical sights. Volume I, used by both the marine and air navigator, contains altitude and true azimuth values of seven selected stars for the complete ranges of latitude and hour angle 5/5(2).

No. vol. 1 (Sight Reduction Tables for Air Navigation – selected stars epoch – year ). Celestial navigation, also known as astronavigation, is the ancient and modern practice of position fixing that enables a navigator to transition through a space without having to rely on estimated calculations, or dead reckoning, to know their ial navigation uses "sights", or angular measurements taken between a celestial body (e.g. the Sun, the Moon, a planet, or a star) and. These sight reduction forms are for use with 'Celestial Navigation Theory and Practice' by Jack Case (publication date TBA). The forms have been modified for use as learning aids for specific chapters of the book; they contain guidance notes to assist readers to develop the knowledge and skills needed to calculate astronomical position lines (LOPs). .
