    Computer generated Almanac
    From: Vic Fraenckel
    Date: 2003 Sep 5, 09:36 -0400

    Loath as SOME users of this list are to introducing computers into celestial
    navigation, I would like to find someone that has used the "JPL Planetary
    and Lunar Ephemerides" data to actually produce a computer almanac. I would
    like to do so but am not sure how to proceed. I am NOT interested in getting
    the data via the many excellent Web based systems as accessing the web is
    NOT practical while at sea.
    Any enlightenment will be appreciated.
