    Almanac errors
    From: Wolfgang K�berer
    Date: 2008 Mar 5, 09:10 +0100

    Mary Croarken has published three articles about computing the Nautical
    Almanac in the 18th century:
    
    Mary Edwards: Computing for a Living in 18th-Century England, in: IEEE
    Annals of the History of Computing, Vol.�25 (2003),�no.�4,� 9-15.
    
    Providing Longitude for all. The eighteenth century computers of the
    Nautical Almanac, in: Journal for Maritime Research, September 2002.
    
    Tabulating the Heavens: Computing the Nautical Almanac in the 18th-Century
    England, in: IEEE Annals of the History of Computing, Vol. 25 (2003), no. 3,
    48 - 61.
    
    I haven't read them, but they might contain more information about Almanac
    errors and their causes.
    
    Regards,
    Wolfgang
