Comparing a-values

If you wish to compare a-values (intercepts) computed from tables by hand with those obtained from StarPilot (or any calculator or software) then you must use the Assumed Position for the DR position in StarPilot. If you do not, you will still get the same LOPs once plotted, but the a-values themselves will be different since you use different reference points. Hence if you want to see the same a-values, simply enter the AP used in the tables approach as the DR in the calculator and you should get the same values out.
