And here is the one of the most popular and informative books on the compass error correction. The content of the publication cover all relevant aspects, starting from the very essentials of the magnetism lying in the foundation of the compass working principle. The book opens with the section giving the general introductory information on the magnetic compass errors and how they work, what can cause the error and how the errors are applied and how can they be found.

Then, the author explains the compass correction tables and deviation tables, moving then to the compass adjustment. As you can see, literally everything has been covered, so the reader will get to know everything he or she needs to be able to cope with the compass error. Needless to say that the first thing here is to understand the construction of the compass and its operation.

The book will definitely be so useful to all people with the interest in the celestial navigation and ship handling in general, but will also be appreciated by all people willing to know a bit more about ship navigation. Several appendices to the main content of the book provide additional information. A real must have one, compact and so handy volume.
