The present publication is devoted to the celestial navigation and its use in the modern marine navigation. The content of the publication will tell readers about the concepts of celestial navigation - the author tried to convey them in clear and understandable manner. Most of the activities explained in the pages of this nice volume would only require a scientific calculator – and there will be no need for any other equipment and appliances.

The book will move readers towards better understanding of all principles of celestial navigation including different ways of plotting lines of positions, checking the sextant and many other things. According to the reviews, this is one of the best books on celestial navigation but our visitors may wish to compare it with such titles as the Celestial Navigation for Sailors, Celestial Navigation for Yachtsmen or A Short Guide to Celestial Navigation.

The main advantage that this book offers is an excellent balance between theory and practice maintained by the author. In fact the author of the book succeeded where the most of his predecessors failed - he provided clear explanations of why exactly the practical steps described in the book, work.
