Celestial navigation can be a daunting and intimidating subject for some to learn. There are many comprehensive books on the subject which I recommend, but the beginning student can be overwhelmed by the vast amount of information in these texts. To initially learn celestial navigation, sometimes less is more. By clearing a path through the esoteric details and providing just enough information with concise explanations, simple visual aids and examples, learning celestial navigation becomes easier and more enjoyable. The goal of this booklet is to serve as a launch pad into the subject which may be all that many yachtsmen need. For those who want to learn more, this booklet will prepare you for more in-depth studies.
