Authors: Paul A. Titze

fix a ship�s position in charted interstellar space with the assistance of a three dimensional computer based stellar chart and star camera spectrometers capable of measuring angular separations between three sets of pair stars. The method offers another tool for the navigator to rely on if alternative position fixing methods are not available or if the navigator wishes to verify the validity of one�s position given by other means.
