This  is  just  the  tip  of  the  iceberg;  you  should  strive  to  perfect  your celestial  skills.  In  the  event  of  a  large  scale  war,  you  may  find  that  all electronic  means  of  obtaining  a  fix  have  been  knocked  out.  It’s important  that  electronic  fixes  are  compared  to  celestial  fixes  whenever possible. Remember,  the  prudent  navigator  uses  all  available  means  to accurately  fix  the  ship’s  position  along  the  intended  track. Quartermasters  should  study  sources  other  than  this  RTM  to  gain additional  knowledge  on  celestial  navigation.  Dutton's  Navigation  and Piloting  is  a  excellent  reference  on  this  material. 9-40
