US CELESTIAL NAVIGATION SERIES — STAR FINDER
|D O W N L O A D|
If you only ask any mariner about the importance of the celestial navigation in sailing, he will agree that even noting the today's hi-tech electronic navigation systems, such as radio navigation, satellite navigation and so on, the basic knowledge of the of celestial navigation principles shall be possessed by any navigator.
To exclusively rely on electronics can lead to trouble, for example, it can be failure of the navigational equipment, or loss of electric power - and then all you have in your disposal is your knowledge of theoretical navigation. This video closes the US Celestial Navigation series - the first three parts are the Introduction for Beginners, Basic Celestial Concepts, and Celestial Navigation Simplified, and is intended to demonstrate the students the orientation using not only the Sun but also stars making them less dependent on geographical conditions.
Subject information is obviously important to enable mariners locate their position at sea. We would remind about our recommendation to have all parts of the training course downloaded and readily available for everyone willing to improve or refresh their navigation skills since it will be of great use.
