    I never noticed before, but the “Admiralty Manual of Navigation (1964)” doesn’t use either astro or cel nav terms. At least not in Volumes 1 or 2, which are the ones I have.

    It seems to prefer the term “off-shore navigation”, or just “navigation”. 

    Anyway, meant for professionals, but good books if you can find them.

    The course itself is less than 2 hours and focuses on the sight reduction form (SRF) with simple math.

    It was always Astro with me, but I can live with Celestial.  In fact, it's kind of growing on me.  What I don't think I'll ever get used to is seeing good old Maths written Math on this site.  Was it always Math outside UK and when did the difference occur?  DaveP
