    Hello to all,


    A bit late to reply to your message, Raphael.

    Still and if possible, would you mind publishing you set of raw data about this noon time, i.e. heights vs. UT times ? A bit difficult for me to reconstruct your data from your published curves, and even if I could, I would still be missing important information.

    Be so kind a s to specify all relevant information necessary for height reductions, so that I can adequately process you data from such environmental information, e.g. Height of eye if applicable, or specify whether it was from a sextant fitted with an artificial horizon, whether the refraction and other correction[s] such as Index Correction or other need to be performed.

    And also please be so kind as to indicate your gps position which I will use as a benchmark for own results.

    If you can do it, that would be great,

    Thanks in advance,
