Estimating position angle, for me, is a challenge. Despite being able to see a companion clearly I often miss the angle by twenty percent or more! I have taken to describing quadrants, like north-preceeding or south-following , instead. Makes me feel better about myself knowing I am in the right neighbourhood even though I am at the wrong house.
What can I do to turn this weakness around and make it a strength? Maybe, however, it is not a weakness at all. I would like ask others their experiece estimating PA. Then I want to post a list of ten pairs that shows magnitudes and separation but not angle. Enthusiasts would have to observe each pair, guess the PA, and forward the results to CN.
Let me know if you would like to try this test along with any suggestions to make the process work smoothly.
