    I checked my OBSreduce.OUT log file and verified I haven't used the C star 
    facility yet.
    
    Long ago I suggested that the 'Reduce' button should display the computed 
    position on the map. Though I don't expect any more programming errors 
    affecting the output, such a feature could prevent many human errors, which
    was the original intent with my suggestion..
    
    I have found several times (did I find all?) that I first selected the 
    wrong 'Right Angle -' option, or entered 'Frac AS/AB' as 0.1 (or -0.1)
    for a point outside a A-B pair, where -0.1 (or 1.1) would have been appropriate
    (or even 0.4 where 0.6 was intended inside a pair, mistaking A and B).
