Abstract
Od početka čovječanstva, ljudi su se koristili različitim metodama i sredstvima navigacije u prostoru koja se stoljećima razvijala i tako postala znanost. Astronomska navigacija je isprva bila samo vještina vođenja broda oceanima pomoću Sunca i zvijezda, a kasnije je dobila izuzetno važnu ulogu za određivanje položaja broda opažanjem nebeskih tijela koja postaje veoma značajna stavka za povijest pomorske navigacije. Putovanje brodom i određivanje položaja broda bilo bi nemoguće bez instrumenata za mjerenje visine nebeskih tijela koji zahtijevaju posebna znanja i vještine.

Parallel abstract (English)
Since the beginning of humanity, people have used various methods and means of navigation in the area, which been developing for centuries and became a science. At first, celestial navigation was only leadership skill for ships which travels over oceans, using the sun and stars, and later was given an extremely important role in determining the position of the ship's observation of celestial bodies, which becomes very significant item in the history of maritime navigation. Traveling by boat and positioning of the ship would be impossible without the instruments for measuring the height of celestial bodies that require special knowledge and skills.
