    Dear Igor,

    In case you can't find the book - here is a scan of it.

    The actual method is on the pages 53 and on.

    I do not like to complement angles, just take all the minutes values as read off the drum and prepend them with proper degrees (with 359° if the index is to the right of 0° - "off-scale"; with 360° if the index is to the left - "on-scale"). This is straightforward and robust against any computation errors. What you get is what you use - algebraically - in the HS correction process. No need to change signs, etc.

    Warm regards,
    Tony
