Celestial 2.1 using 0 4.4 using Opengl

I was being sloppy about making fixes and the first fix went in ok
Then I tried 3 times with another fix and it bombed with a black screen, spinning wheel and Opencpn crash.
There should be a way to judge when a fix is not "in range" ro whatever and put a prompt up or something, or at least have the Escape key
abort the calc. so it all does not crash. Needs to be more forgiving to dumb fixes.

Well, I found the new wiki for Celestial Nav was missing the two textbook files for typical sights.
I dredged one up from archives and uploaded it for others and then started to enter it.
I failled, it bombed on the third entry. ...and its gotten late. Will try to do some more later.
