    Curiosity: Which value to use??
    From: Al Szymanski
    Date: 2010 Feb 2, 09:29 -0800

    Good day all. Running some reductions for fun and ran into an "oops" of sorts.
    Using the Commercial N.A. and October 24th 2010, 12:58:59 UT, the table Dec and correction comes to S 11° 49.6' - no problems there. However, when I look at 13:00:00 UT, the table sans any correction comes to S 11° 49.5' - clearly an small issue with the need to round in the printed versions.
    My question is simply this: since we usually don't need the tenths which value should I use? The corrected value? I know that it's mostly moot, but it is a curiosity. Thanks to all. I truly enjoy lurking and learning. Al
