    Accuracy
    From: Barry Hudson
    Date: 1999 Oct 27, 13:07 EDT

    Hi All,
    The accuracy discussion is most interesting. One thing I would like to
    mention
    is the personal equation which from my experience is present in all of
    us. I hark
    back to the days when four of us would stand together on the bridge to
    take
    the noon mer.alt. and it was most interesting to observe that not one of
    us
    would come up with the same alt. at dipping time. The result was a
    compromise
    depending on the Captain's mood if bad he would use his own which it now
    can be said was considerably different from the rest and if it persisted
    showed
    when making a landfall.
    At the moment I am busy working on answers to questions I am giving to
    my students and wonder if anyone is interested in taking on a couple.
    1.Find the GMT and LMT of the Moons lower meridian passage on May 20th.
       1977 in Lat.72?'N, Long. 22?'E.
    2.Find the GMT and LMT of lower meridian passage of the Star Peacock on
       May 20th. 1977 in Lat.60?'S, Long. 70?'W.
       Regards to all,
       Barrie Hudson
