    Robert, you wrote:
    "When I first attempted it, I was able to master HO 211 within an hour. I
    do, however, acknowledge that HO 211 is best used with a pre-prepared form.
    It does not really lend itself too well to back-of-the-envelope
    calculations. Still I have never found this to be an impediment."
    Thanks. And I agree. Also, every time I have messed around with HO211, I
    have had to re-learn the steps, but it's not difficult, and in any emergency
    where celestial might be the best position-finding backup, I don't think I
    would worry about spending an hour brushing up on the tables.
