    Re: Camera Spica Lunar

    Hello Greg,


    Thanks for your last 2 Lunars, which cannot be solved through the standard/classical Tables since distances are too small.

    Like earlier, I am assuming that both your UT and Position are "perfect", therefore I am deriving a "sextant observed value" as usual.


    Spica Sextant Lunar : I found 2°54'295 (you observed 2°54'1), hence a difference of 0'195. If I enter 2°54'295 into Frank's Computer, I am getting an error of 3"0 .


    Spica Camera Lunar : I found 2°56'047 (you observed 2°55'4), hence a difference of 0'647. If I enter 2°56'047 into Frank's Computer, I am getting an error of 3"0 .

    Your camera picture is absolutely SUPERB : Well done !

    *******

    I also have taken a look through Google Earth at your place :

    34 10'24" N 119 13'48" W

    So .. you live in a sailboat in the Hollywood (?) Marina ... we can even see your spot if it is your exact position.

    Enjoy, then ...


    Thanks again, Greg


    Kermit
