    1851 Bowditch
    I bought the Starpath pdf version of the 1851 edition. Yes, it has a 26 page section on lunars that I assume is very similar to what Bowditch originally wrote. Since it was written as a procedure for practicing seamen, it relies on tables and does not go deeply into theory. Still, it's nice to have available for a reasonable price.

    Celestaire.com offers a facsimile of the 1851 Bowditch as an ebook with navigation tabs and the ability to search for words and phrases.  I would appreciate comments from anyone who is familiar with this edition, particularly whether it has a good section on lunars.  Christmas is coming…
