Series of measuring data: the altitude, the azimuth and the time from observation of passing of celestial bodies in the field of view of the observing device are input parameters to calculations. This data is burdened with random error of the measurement. The equation of the movement of celestial body in the horizontal system is the result of the equalization. It is possible to calculate the azimuth and the altitude for the chosen moment or to fix the time of the given azimuth or the altitude from this equation.}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Measurements of the Altitude, Measurements of the Azimouth, Time Measurements, Celestial Navigation, Observation of Passages of Celestial Bodies, Astronavigation, Celestial Bodies, Equalization} }
