AS 2001 Positional Astronomy

In February 1998, I gave a short series of lectures on Positional Astronomy for second-year students at St.Andrews University.
These pages basically provide a copy of the lecture handouts.
In some cases the text is slightly amplified.
I have also added some worked examples, mainly taken from the tutorial sheets.

Some sections of the text are in the form of GIF files, where I had to include symbols not available in standard HTML text. These may take some time to download. Please let me know if they come out too small to read comfortably.

Comments, complaints or queries?
E-mail Fiona Vincent.
