    You're probably thinking of one of Meeus' books. Willmann-Bell
    publishes and sells them:
    Astronomical Formulae for Calculators is an old (by computer
    standards) classic. Has gone through several editions.
    Astronomical Algorithms came along later and is basically a superset
    of his earlier book. It includes some more elaborate and accurate
    computations more suitable for a computer than a calculator. A second
    edition came out in 1999.
    WATCH OUT: I've got a first printing of the first edition of
    Astronomical Algorithms. It has numerous typos in critical places.
    Years ago I saw a list of errata on-line and have made pencil
    corrections in my copy.
