Well, I haven't put anything on the reflector since the "bugs". So, here
Declination is the angle of a heavenly body with the earths horizon
Variation is the offset of magnetic north to true north a some location
Deviation is the amount of correction persuant to a particular compass at
different points around the compass dial, it is not necessarily the same
all the way around.
So there, I have stuck my neck out again.. HI...
Hurrah for recurring threads and all the various permutations there of!!!!!
