    Hi Gordon,
            Your work should be very accurate. I had compare your example with my
    JavaScript program, which can be find at
    http://www.speednet.net/~himarj/navscript/sunsight.htm , and the result
    is GHA 293 degrees 33.51 minutes and Dec North 1 degree 43.74 minutes.
            My program should have accuracy of less than 0.3 minutes from my
    experiance of using it on board for few years.
            Please note that the JavaScript program does not work with Netsacpe
    3.0, don't ask me why - I don't know yet, but it works prefectly correct
    with Netscape 2.02.
