    Re: R: Alternative almanacs
    From: Parsa
    Date: 2007 Oct 02, 11:33 -0700

    As I said in the original post, I have seen Windows PC almanacs such
    as the Starpath almanac, but I had not seen a Macintosh almanac. The
    US Naval Observatory puts out an ephemeris for both Windows and
    Macintosh that is similar to the Astronomical almanac, but it gives
    right ascension, not the Greenwich Hour Angle. I also have a program
    called Voyager by Carina software, but again it only gives RA, and
    only to the minute. It's really just for finding the object with a
    telescope, not for precise navigation.
    
    All that said, I was mainly wondering if anyone uses any alternate
    paper almanacs beside the nautical almanac.
