Sažetak
The paper is the presentation of an up-to-date method of nautical astronomy for ascertaining the ship's geographical Co-ordinates that can be applied in ocean navigation. The method is a purely numerical one, i.e. there is no need of drawing or graphic display of any kind, nor is previous knowledge of the ship's position by observation or dead reckoning required. In the application of this method the navigator has within a short interval of time to shoot with the sextant the altitudes of two known heavenly bodies, and by means of the slave gyro at least one, and if possible two approximate azimuths of the observed heavenly bodies.
