    Re: Calculating accurate apparent-angles between stars

    Hello, all,
    Although I am collecting errors in Cotter's book together with George 
    Huxtable, nevertheless I consider it invaluable and the best on the matter. 
    It is worth xerocopying for all of you who desire to read and use it. (What I 
    did.) It has 390 pages.
