Hello to all,
In the very last part of the NavList Post here-above referenced, I requested some information on the classical Lunars Clearing method since I very seldom use it.
Meanwhile I retrieved the enclosed hand copied diagram which entirely replies to this query. (To you Frank: no longer need for feedback regarding this specific query of the referenced Post).
Nonetheless, this enclosed layout triggers a different question, (hence this new header) :
WHO was the first Mathematician / Astronomer having the idea of inventing/devising such a diagram as a preliminary step to solve Lunars ? And WHEN ?
I am aware that quite a few "classical" clearing methods have been devised.
Nonetheless they all seem to refer to such layout as the same and only basis to start their deriving their various Clearing Methods.
Thanks in advance for the light you can bring here.
