Celestial Navigation for Beginners, Toghill, Jeff
3 Toghill, Jeff Celestial Navigation for Beginners
Australia Reed (A.H.& A.W.) 1978 0589500422 / 9780589500429 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
111 pages including diagrams and b/w illustrations. To the uninitiated, Celestial Navigation appears to be a somewhat frightening exercise in mathematics. ln fact, the maximum mathematics involved in the new sight reduction systems is the addition of three lines of figures. Similarly, the apparent complexities of the solar and stellar systems take on a less frightening appearance when related to the lighthouses and similar earthly objects used for coastal navigation. Throughout this book, the author uses such a comparison between earthly and heavenly objects in explaining the close relationship between coastal and celestial navigation. In doing so, he reduces a complex subject to a simple and interesting one that can be absorbed by even the most non-mathematically minded. The book concentrates for much of its length on the plotting of the boat’s position by sun, planets and stars when out of sight of land. It also deals with related navigational routines such as checking the compass by using heavenly objects, taking radio time signals, and adjusting the sextant for day-to-day corrections. This is celestial navigation in its simplest form presented in a way which even the most amateur navigator can understand and absorb.

165 pages including colour illustrations. About the history of the universe written in Chinese. Some 15 billion years ago, a titanic explosion created space and time and started the universe on its epic journey towards ever greater complexity. Out of a tiny primordial speck was woven an immense tapestry of hundreds of billions of galaxies, each home to as many stars. In one of those galaxies, on a planet circling a nondescript star, there emerged human beings with the ability to marvel at the beauty and harmony of the cosmos. In clear, simple language, this account explains the Big Bang and its ever-expanding consequences.
