Altitude Tables

Nature volume 78, page 29 (14 May 1908) | Download Citation



SINCE the notice of the first part of this work appeared in NATURE of February 20, the companion volume for latitudes 0° to 30° has been published, making these tables complete between the parallels of 60° N. and 60° S. By their means the navigator can with facility and rapidity determine his position by the observation of any heavenly body the declination of which does not exceed 24°, and, as the latitude and declination are interchangeable in the tables, they are consequently available for all stars up to 60° in declination between 24° N. and 24° S.
