I’m working through the book of problems by Leonard Gray. In one he lists Polaris among other stars for an intercept fix but of course there is no SHA listed in the Almanac. I know this is simpler than I’m making it but since I’m using an HO229 work form I get lost in where to go with this. Do I just make the Polaris corrections and use a Z of north?March 18, 2020 at 2:27 pm #3659Tyler SzwarcParticipant
The SHA for Polaris isn’t listed on the daily pages in the Almanac, but it can be found in a table toward the end of the book (along with many other stars). In my almanac, it’s on pages 272-273.
Hope this helps,
