    EoT Curve calculated by VB
    From: Bob Goethe
    Date: 2021 Nov 23, 12:18 -0800

    I found an image of a discontinued astrolabe, which is attached to this message.  It has a kidney-shaped curve that represents the equation of time.  I would like to produce something like this using CorelDraw.

    Corel is able to execute VisualBasic code...so what I am looking for are VB equations that calculate the equation of time. If I can get VB to give me basic daily values, I can get Corel to output this as a curve.

    The Astron spreadsheet has an EoT field, but seems to be sufficiently locked down that I could not figure out how to see the code that filled in that field.

    Can anyone suggest a source where I could find viewable code?

    Thanks!

    Bob
