    Yes, it would seem so.  BTW, the book comes with a pretty good Celestial nav
    program on the disk, and all the tables and formulae you need to create your
    own almanac are also on the disk for those of us who want to program this
    themselves, along with explanations and hints in the book for programmers.

    Rino,
    
    Yes, I have looked at this but got to wondering what happens on January 1,
    2006? Buy another package?

    | I created the data from the tables and formulas in AstroNav PC, which you
    | can find here: http://www.willbell.com/navigation/index.htm
    |
    | Looked into the JPL thing too, but I'm afrrais that was way over my
    head...

    | 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.
    |
    | TIA
    |
    | Vic
