    I have embarked on the long task of creating a program that does sight
    reductions without an paper almanac. I am going to replace the paper almanac
    with the JPL Planetary and Luner Ephemerides which is available on CDROM
    from Willmann-Bell, among other places. While I am quite aware that this has
    been done before, I am doing it as an intellectual excersize. While not a
    calculator person, I applaude your efforts.
    I didn't want you to think you were a lonely voice in the dark.

    | I wrote an article in PBO No. 326 (February 1994) titled "A Sun Sight
    | Calculator for UKL 17" for a TI-67 and a near identical article for
    | World (March 1996) titled "Create Your Own Sun Sight Reduction Program"
    for a
    | TI-81.  The theory is given in an article in the fall 1997 issue of The
    | Navigator's Newsletter.
    | If you would like a copy of any of them, let me know.
    | This has been a continuing hobby of mine.  For a while I sold a much
    | program for the TI-82 that did not only the Sun but also the Moon, four
    | planets, and 93 stars.  It has been a great way to learn a bit of obscure
    | knowledge.
