Going through a full star reduction takes quite a bit of time. Through c-nav class, you learn many things, one of which is the full reduction. Yet, on the cruise celestial program, all you are expected to do are full reductions.
I’ve taken a test that had three shots on it and worked them down, and plotted them in their entirety. It’s a lot to take in for sure, but the videos are there. You can pause and restart them as many times as you like until you get through the whole reductions. I recommend downloading and printing out the pages that are linked below so you can follow along on a real piece of paper as I go through stuff.
You can also download the youtube videos with a youtube downloading site like savevid.com. If that doesn’t work, shoot firstname.lastname@example.org a note and the dudes can give you the whole series on a flash drive.
Special thanks to Chris Burns for the help with the video.
