## Determining the compass deviation using reciprocal bearings

November 9, 2016 SorinMStamate

Determining the compass deviation using reciprocal bearings: The compass deviation can be determined by reciprocal bearings, if ashore does not exist leading lines and nor faraway objects.

## Determining the compass deviation using a faraway object
