    A DIY almanac and tables by Erik De Man
    From: Tony Oz
    Date: 2019 Jan 9, 08:28 -0800


    For quite some time I prefer this set of Almamancs and correction/interpolation tables. German yachtsman Mr Erik De Man publishes them and is kind to listen and respond to suggestions on making his materials easier to use.

    Recently he has updated the Parallax correction tables to include Moon augmentation as a one-step operation.

    His almanacs now include the SHA (at 4-hour intervals) of the celestial bodies - to make placing them on a star-finder or a star-globe for sight-planning easier.

    I have his permission to invite everyone to discuss these materials.

    Thank you in advance.

    Warm regards,
