    What I meant to write was that I repeated his *calculations*, using both
    Witchell's method (as he had done) and using Margetts' tables. I intend
    to repeat some of his *observations* as there are several sites
    relatively close by where I know his precise location, but I have not
    done so yet. When I do, I will certainly post my results to the list.
    P.S. My observing skill from my backyard at its best is about equal to
    Thompson's average (and I have the advantage of mosquito repellent!).
