This sounds easy, and it is. However, both books involve tables, and therefore we must interpolate between table entries. For example, The Nautical Almanac gives the position of the Sun every hour throughout the year.
Because we normally do not observe an object exactly on the hour, we must interpolate between tabulated hourly entries. The interpolations are not difficult; strip forms and other tables in the book can be used to guide you.
