    Re: Almanac accuracy, WAS: Re: Hughes Tables.

    Sorry to cause confusion.
    The original post #9098 mentions fomalhault, 09-00Hrs. 13 July 2009.
    My posting #9122 made very late at night with brain at barely tickover,  gave 
    GHA actually for 2009 (correctly) but then mentions 2008 in the next sentence 
    - must have been a typo. I also used 39 degrees for Lat in Hughes calculation 
    instead of 40 degrees in error, (corrected later).
    So for the record;  'ICE' v0.5.  gives for fomalhault at 09-00 Hrs. 13 July;
    2008:  GHA 82-04.8   Declination S29-34.4
    2009:  GHA 81-49.6   Declination S29-34.0
    These values can be expected to be the same as found in the Nautical Almanac for those years.
